So yes, I have admitted to being a loser in that paragraph up there. My small crescent shaped shawl/scarf is done and it is a failure. It is only a failure in the it will never be worn sense. It was a complete winner as far as knitting it is concerned. I enjoyed knitting the pattern. The yarn is fine. I knew I was likely to be disappointed. I really did just wing this with a couple of balls of yarn and the need to knit anything except what I already had on the needles. The entire problem is that the piece ended up too small for my liking. I ended up with more yarn left over than I should have, you know, had I actually planned what I was doing. I will knit this again. I will do it when I have more than two smallish balls of yarn. I will use this yarn for something else. Probably a hat since there would be more than enough yarn for that.
Don’t worry about me. I have moved on to something else. I love finding something new to cast on. I have enough yarn for this project to turn out the way I want. I picked a lovely yarn from the stash. We’ll all have to wait and see how it works out though.
