Third Time is A Charm… I Hope

Oy. I was given a knitted blanket kit from D a while ago and I am just getting around to it now. It had been started and was in a bit of a tangle so I ripped it out and started over. The blanket it knit on size 35 circular needles and has 5 different yarn strands, one type that sheds like crazy. As I was nearing row 20 or so I realized that I was not going to have nearly enough of one type of yarn to make anything larger than a pillow case… So I read the pattern more closely and realized that I was using too much of one type of yarn. After ripping out what I had done, covering myself in fuzz that makes it look like a white cat sat on me for a week, I adjusted the strands I started again. Last night I got all the way to row 40 and realized there were two balls of yarn of a type that I hadn’t used yet! Now you may be wondering why I don’t just add this new yarn and continue until the end. I wish I was the type of person who could do that. But I just can’t. I will have to rip out everything I have done and start over… again. I hope that this is the last time. D, I was going to give you the blanket, but after all this I am going to keep it.
