Oh it is a heartbreaking task to have to frog something that you are just about done with! That's exactly what I had to do yesterday.
I am busy with some Christmas gifts at the moment, one of them being a lovely warm hat with a cabled pattern. With only about a third left to do I realised that I had gone horribly wrong. It's my own fault, I read the pattern but did not quite understand what they were saying so winged it a bit. After two afternoons of knitting I realised that my had did not look like the one in the picture. So after going through a couple of other people's Antler Hats on Ravelry I managed to work out the mistake.
Working out where I went wrong is a good thing, however it meant that I had to frog right the way back to the ribbing! Arrrrgggg! :(
Anyhoo, I am once again making good progress and will have it ready plenty of time to spare.
Reading: I am still busy with my Amelia Peabody murder mystery but making slow progress. I'm just not getting much reading time at the moment, so I took out a book to flip through from the library yesterday on Fair Isle knitting - Fair Isle Style by Jane Mucklestone. I have limited experience with Fair Isle but do so admire it and really want to learn how to knit Fair Isle really well! There are a couple of lovely small projects to get stuck into so once I have finished my Antler had I will choose a project to knit for the next person on my Christmas list ;)
