WiP it Wednesday: WTF Edition!

You see this?


It’s the “Shop ‘till you Drop” bag in the new and improved 150-stitches cast on version.

There’s one problem with that.

Remember the pattern I was emailed on Sunday when I couldn’t find my pattern? It said that the larger bag in the 150-stitch size would require a third skein of yarn. I went to Bloomin’ Yarns today to pick up said skein. Unfortunately, they don’t carry the color of yarn I’m working with in allhemp6.

She did have another kit of the same bag. I got curious. I pulled the pattern out of the kit.

Larger size, cast on 125 stitches. Only needs two skeins of the yarn.

WTF!!!?!?!?!!!

This thing is going to spend some time at the bottom of my knitting bag. I can’t even look at it right now. Oh, and I have no idea how I’m going to proceed. Frog again and cast on the original 125 stitches? Somehow acquire another skein and proceed with the 150 I’m currently working with? Give the whole damn thing to the first person who asks for it? I don’t know.

Onward!


My Fleece Artist sock is almost ready for me to stockingette along to the toe. A few more decreases and I’m through the heel gusset. Whee!


The Steelers/Harry Potter scarf is cruising right along. It’s very fun and perfect on the mindless schedule. I’m a fan, and could probably be convinced to make another one without much effort.

So that’s about it from here. Today was errand-heavy. Maybe tomorrow I can start knocking stuff off of my “home” list and get some quilting or knitting done.

The bag can just go into time-out, and perhaps if you decide it's got to be frogged again, you can do it with company. However, you might want to try contacting the designer and asking her why the contradictions--150 may be right after all!

If it were me, I'd scrap it and find a new pattern. But that's just me. I'm stubborn like that.

Yeesh...I'd say a note to the designer or whoever is in order there...
