I’ve probably expressed many times that I am pretty impatient when it comes to projects, however I always have the lesson to “slow down” thrown in my face.
I don’t like to do knit swatches, so I sometimes end up with garments that are too big or too small.
Fitting takes to long when you just want to jump into sewing.
Who wants to read the directions?! Let’s just dive right in!
With this project I wanted to start right away so I failed to check for the errata that would have eliminated my confusion on stitch count later in the pattern.
Other than that, this project was a nice knit that traveled well despite my use of multiple colors. The pattern is the large version of Dotted Rays, by Stephen West knit using Knit Pick’s Stroll Tonal mini pack in the Spring Field Colorway.
I am forcing myself to slow down a bit more with every project. Don’t they call it “slow crafting” for a reason?
