When Good Projects Go Bad

Here at Fluther HQ, we know well the sting of a Good Project Gone Sour...however, the newer knitters in the group are not yet used to the Epic Fail that happens sometimes.

Tony was all pumped over the magnificent blanket he just finished (pictures soon!  This project requires better than my cell phone), and was calling for KOY (Knitter of the Year) to be bestowed upon him without further ado.

Then he ran afoul of the Bedrock Hat...A fail on every level.  Brim was to be worked flat -- fail, he knit it in the round.  New complicated stitch pattern -- took a few tries to get it perfected. Decrease for the crown -- fail, the instructions were wrong.  Attempt #2 on the decreases -- fail.  Tried it on -- fail, you see the results at left.

Onward and Upward, my friend.  Onward and Upward.

As ye knit, so shall ye rip - didn't they learn that at all those religious schools they went to????

No on all fronts. Rough project...

haha no religious schools for us! Strictly secular. But wise words nonetheless.

Awesome! Definitely need to share that site Sue. In other news, TJ has shamed me into working on my sweater again. Finally ready to get her done, now that I'm past ripping back and finishing the sleeves. She's going to be fantastic!
