So I ordered yarn for my next big project. Model 509, from Gedifra Highlights 033. I’ll be using Rowan Cashsoft DK in misty gray and I have high hopes for this one! I don’t know if I’ll be ready to dive right in when the yarn gets here or not. If not, I’ll continue to occupy myself with the Summertime Tunic.

Well, in light of my one year blogiversary, it makes sense that I’d enter my Terrible Two’s all angry and frustrated and wanting to throw things. Stupid ruffled surplice. Thank you so much for all of your fantastic suggestions! I guess I could fix some of the problems if I really wanted to, but I think there’s just too much wrong with this pattern. I can already tell I wouldn’t wear it very much, so I think I’ll be ripping this one. There are a lot of cut ends, but I may be able to salvage some of the yarn for some kind of smaller project. I’m also trying to see this as a learning experience… Lesson #1: Size 8 needles are just too big for something that’s supposed to be a rather delicate style. (Although I thought I already learned that lesson once…or twice.) Lesson #2: I am too old to wear ruffles.
