>Frogged and started again


black china doll start

I tore out the previous posts item the red china doll sweater. I had made a few mistakes in it (understatement of the century). I have now started over about 6 or 7 times or more lost count, it isn’t the patterns fault it is mine my mind just would not focus well for some reason and kept making the same mistakes over and over again. So now I am about three rows from the joining under the arms the point in which I tore out all the other times. But unlike all the other times I am happy with this at the moment. Everything looks right where it never did to me before. I have also changed colors from red to black. May still make one in red just not at the moment. I still very much like this pattern and hope to make many more of this sweater if it comes out the way I expect it to.

I contacted Doris Chan the designer of the pattern to ask her a few questions about it. Stating what I thought I was doing wrong and she confirmed it to me. At least I knew what mistakes I was making and she was very gracious and replied to my inquires a very nice lady. Above you can see where I am now.

My children make the statement that they never see me tear things out. I always laugh at that saying I tear things out all the time. I just don’t usually talk about it. Just tear out and keep going not a big deal to me usually. But because they are so surprised by it I wondered if my readers thought the same thing. I have been trying to post lately when I tear out and things of that sort so that beginners know it is fine to tear out. You learn so much more ripping out than you do just following the pattern.

    >I'm afraid I'm one of your followers who thought that you never made a mistake. Good to know you're human just like the rest of us. LOL

    >Keep going you will get there in the end. I know how annoying it is to find mistakes when you think you are doing so well.
