It’s not pretty

Here are my adventures in wrapping rows for short row shaping. It's not pretty, so if you're at all squeamish, please turn away now!

The first two pictures show the piece (it's the back of the jacket) from two different angles, and so far, it's ok. If you squint, you can even see the shaping.

Now the thing approaches (this photo shows the true colour of the Froya Narvik, by the way) and you begin to shudder:

Yikes! See what I mean?

And this:

Now off you go and look at some pretty knitting instead! And no, I am not going to frog this. No.

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.

  1. I admire the fact that you gave short row shaping a try! I’ve read articles about it and can’t even understand them!

  2. Crap I just reread what I typed, let’s chalk it up to lack of coffee. I am impressed with ANYONE knitting seems such an unreachable goal for some of us,,,(read:ME)

    WHEW!!
