Starting Over

Sometimes you just have to start over.

Here's the Christmas stocking I've been working on.

Isn't it pretty? I'm getting better at Fair Isle. I love the colors.

But...I ripped it all out last night. It was too long. I used bigger needles than the pattern called for thinking I wanted it bigger around. I never thought about the length. It was 4 inches longer than it should be.

So I'm starting over. Sometimes that's best.

Oh no! That was so pretty. I'm with Regina--long is good. At least you got a picture of it.

LOVE IT! That is so beautiful! I haven't had the nerve to begin color work yet so my projects are pretty stale!
