Frogging the tunic

So, I decided to finally frog the tunic. I got the suggestion to elongate it to make it into a dress instead, which I think might have worked, but to me it was too much work to pick up new stitches at the bottom hem line. So into the frog pond it went. I spent the better half of my Saturday evening rolling the yarn into balls, which was a real hassle since I'd knitted with two yarns (alpaca and cotton viscose), and the two strands kept tangling! But I finally managed to salvage all of it. I think I've found another pattern for the alpaca, a long sweater with cables, but I'm not sure what I'll make of the cotton viscose. It might turn into some kind of shawl eventually, but that will have to wait a while until I find a good pattern.

Meanwhile, I'll try to finish my thick, cabled socks, maybe some time next weekend? I've got a lot of reading to do next week before the seminar, so I guess I'll not get a lot of knitting done, but I'll make up for it the week after.

So, no interesting photos today. I'll try to take some of the socks once I finish the first one.

Ah MAN!! I hate that! Frogging something partially the way through just kills me. I think once I knit more I'll probably get more used to it.

Well, congratulations on making the tough call. I hope your cabled sweater will make it all worth it! :)
