If you can't tell I have been in a rather (pardon my language) pissy mood.
I blame my ridiculous idea of "trying something different". It sounds great on paper, but once you begin it is a frustrating, bumpy ride that I was just not ready for. As my husband would put it "I wore roller skates to an ice rink." I just was not prepared.
To fill you in even further:
So my brilliant idea was to try to design diaper covers (they look easy enough). I have SO many GREAT ideas for different designs that I just had to start on them! (think coordinating with my hats!)
So I got my hook, my yarn, and my notebook and started away! I thought I was doing well, I had some measurements and some idea of how to start the pattern.
I probably got about 1/3 of the way through and decided I had made this WAY too big. (we are talking about 4 sizes too big!)
So I went with it. Changed the size in my mind, then it ended up being too small. My measurements were off, and the thing looks distorted, not what I had in mind at ALL.
Grrr... I have been tweaking and restitching, and unraveling for about a week and I am still no where near the outcome I was looking for.
So what to do now?
Start over, and I mean OVER. I am throwing everything away, all my (bad) covers so far, and the so called pattern I have created that does not work AT ALL!
Ahh... that feels better.
I am sure many of you have felt this way before, something that seems like a wonderful, gorgeous idea in your head, doesn't come out just right.
What did you do?
