Sometimes, when we finish a knitting project, it's like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Sometimes, we are granted at least one (and maybe all) of our three wishes. (That it fits, that we don't run out of yarn, that our gauge swatch was true, for example.)
Sometimes, we really can spin gold out of straw.
Not so much.
My face . . . says it all.
Fee. Fi. Fo. Fum.
This disaster was supposed to be this.
But my gauge swatch lied.
I hate the yarn. (It's thick and twists a lot.)
I don't think a good-soak-and-a-toss-in-the-dryer would help at all.
No pot of gold at the end of this rainbow!
(Sometimes Rumpelstilskin wins . . . and you really can't spin gold from straw.)
Some knitting fairy tales . . . are just Grimm.
I hope your knitting this week is full of fairy tale magic and that all your wishes that come true!
(And don't feel bad for me. I'm on to a new story already . . . )
