It is with a little lingering dread that I frogged Myrna and Marmalade.
These two projects got the ax for very different reasons:
- Myrna: I casted this on to knit for our KAL. I love, love, love the yarn I purchased (Wool Bamboo in red). However, it is too warm to wear in the summer (reason #1). Although I have great respect for White Lies designs--beautiful garments, I didn't enjoy working on this sweater. I don't know if it is the amount of ribbing (reason #2). I also HATE pressure knitting (i.e. knitting for a deadline or for a set reason), and the KAL was forcing me to work on this and I just didn't want to (reason #3). I gave in and frogged it despite the KAL.
- Marmalade: I bought this kit many years ago in a colorway I would never wear. I dyed the yellow (bad color for me) to red last year and thought that would take care of it. It really didn't. It just wasn't me. I tend to wear solids, or a very calm print. This was way wild in the color area. I decided I really liked the yarn and it will be GREAT to use in hats and such.
