I just read through my last post and felt quite heartbroken at my hope and grand plans for my circular knitting needles. Sadly, my spring plans are not flourishing as I hoped they would. Time is against me, and so it would seem, are circular knitting needles. Somehow, I managed to knit almost a whole ball of wool (this is a lot for me, I’m very slow) to create a twisted confusion of what a snood should be like. I think a bit of muddlement in my very first row meant that it was never going to be solved, however I was determined that once I removed the needles it would all be fiiiiine. Alas not. A trip home and into the Knitting Rescue Centre provided by my mum ensured me that the snood was doomed. I watched in despair as she unravelled my work of art and proceeded to re-knit it to the stage I was at. The circular knitting needles were punished and plunged into boiling water, so that they could then be straightened out to prevent curling twirls of knitting needle causing another twirltastic snood. Now that I am doing it properly I can appreciate how wrong I was! How embarrassing. In the name of nostalgia, I have included a photograph of the disaster, because I did feel quite proud of it once. Fingers crossed that the new and improved snood will be completed before summer. Although I’m so determined, I’m just going to wear it whatever the weather. Flip flops paired with snoods will be the next big thing. Dharlings.
