Weekend Wrap Up

Not much to report-it's raining, pouring and windy-another storm and it could be worse, it could be a snowstorm.

I've been having "pattern" issues again this weekend, since Friday-basically everything I touch is not working out. I didn't even attempt to start the moebius with the Ritratto for fear of frogging. I also realized I should heed my own advice and print out the errata sheet before I start the project-all I am going to say is "oh my". I started two tank tops, frogged both and put the yarn away and now am working on a bolero. I am trying to do this using the schematic only-which is what I should have done from the beginning. It's not the patterns either, it's me-just can't seem to concentrate.

Tomorrow will be better, or so I keep telling myself. I have work tomorrow, so won't be posting til Tuesday any updates.

I have had the same kind of slumps as well. In fact, I am getting ready to frog something and begin again, for the 3rd time. I have many wips that may never become fos for that reason. Hope all things take a turn for the better soon.

New Jersey's weather made the morning news. I hope it isn't in your area. You guys are having a rough spring.
I understand about the frogging. It seems that sometimes anything I try just flat refuses to work. I guess it's just one of those wrinkles in life, but I do wish my life was more permapress.

I sympathize with you on pattern issues... that's why I opt for working with the schematic... but I'm sure you'll get it right. The Ritratto is off hook... the colors are beautiful. Checked out CrochetMe!... great job on the hat.

We got tons of rain here yesterday, it would rain the sun would come out start getting cloudy and rain again. Today it was very windy. I did not get to work on any projects this weekend went to my local Hobby Lobby and Walmart neither had the yarn I needed to complete any of my projects. I hope you have a great week Good luck on your project.
