Have you give up on a project when you feel like it’s not going right? Is it easy for you throw in the towel?!?
So I’m blogging to let my steam out. I’m so frustrated, disappointed of a very bad job I made of my current project (but I can label it now as ex-project because I’m totally giving up.) .
This is actually a relatively easy pattern; and I guess that’s what making me more frustrated because it’s supposed to be easy. But maybe it was not. (I have a twisted perception of easy and not.)
What made me more frustrated because I need to wear it today, later at 3pm for a wedding where I’m going to walk down rhe aisle as secondary sponsor! 😭😭😭
I caught this mistake a day ago, but I thought I could just wing it out by trying to make up with stitches here and there. I was trying to correct a mistake by another mistake. Unfortunately, it ends up a total disaster.
Here are details of this if you want to make it:
Pattern: Seaside Dress by Moon Eldridge
Yarn: Dazzle from Sugarfree
Crochet hook size: 3.5
This is relatively easy pattern. My mistake was (and is always my weakness) that I did not thoroughly read the pattern instructions. This is a seamless pattern BUT There was supposed to be a “TURN” in every row, but what I did was continouosly work in circle / around. Before this, there were already other mistakes. But this mistake could not be easily detected unless you made quite a length of job already. And if you have limited time, frogging could not be an option; all I can do is cry-cry and whine!!!😭😭😭
(It’s not obvious in the earlier part.)
On the bright side, the journey of this bad job was not really bad. It gave me company in SG last week… ( Please watch out for my SG yarn shop hopping in my upcoming blogpost.😊)
…and it ticked off my 1st-world bucketlist: to have a crochet photo in a train. 😂
But I just have to cut the journey short as it no longer makes me happy.
On the other thought, maybe I could pull it off and pretend I’m boho chic. 😂 TOO MUCH EXPECTATION again! 😂
