The Word

  • 1 Corinthians 16:14
    Do everything in love.
  • Philippians 4:6, 7
    Don't worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Restless Knitter

Aww. Ripping isn't any fun, especially when you have to knit it all over again.


Ouch, I guess we were hopeful too soon, still better something that you are completely happy with than something that will annoy you every time you wear it...


You made the right decision, even though it's painful. I have been doing ripping nad ripping on my socks too :)

Oh noooooooooo!!!!! Hate the ripping. But, as the other commenters have noted, it is worth it in the long run to have a hood you can love. Not that this takes the sting out of it on any level. Good luck!


Well at least you might have the day off. I see you have a mess of weather up there. Can't wait to see it, I'm sure your CPH is beautiful. :)


Ripping out your work can be painful, considering all of the time you've put into it, but I think that the extra effort is worth it. If you're going to spend all of that time knitting a garment (especially in a fab yarn like Malabrigo), I think it's worth the hassle of ripping and reknitting.


Don't you just hate that? All that work, hey, but you'll love it when it's all done! Remember, it's the process and you're learning and the brain cells are happy. :o) I can't wait to see it finished, I missed that sweater somewhere along the way. I've seen a few pop up in blogland and it's really nice.

I'm sorry about the cables! However, it is always better to take the time and fix it rather than be unhappy with it in the long run.


What a bummer!


Sorry about the frogging - but you will be happier for it.


I think you made a good choice. Beth. Why have it handknit for all those hours and have a part of the sweater not what you want it to be? Heck, a few weeks ago, I ripped out an entire Josephine!


That is so frustrating. I promise you, when it's all done, the frogging part will be forgotten. Hang in there!
