Frogged...again

Yesterday I frogged Juno. I had been knitting along happily, enjoying the yarn and the pattern. But when I completed chart 4 and got ready to settle in for the long haul of a 2 row repeat for 42", I finally paid heed to that incessant little voice in the back of my mind. I pinned out the scarf and had to face the fact that the yarn and pattern just didn't go.



This is the second time I have frogged this yarn. First time round was for the Featherweight cardi were things just didn't feel right either. I really love the colour of this yarn and I like the feel of it. I don't want it to languish back in my stash again so please, any pattern suggestions to help me out here?

I've completed a second Golden Eye square for the Summer Squares project. This square was knit in Bendigo Woollen Mills 4 ply cotton using 4.5 mm needles. This square measures 35 x 35 cm and will form part of the blanket I intend to knit.

sometimes you just know, don't you? I just frogged a laceweight ishbel for the same reason. Love the yarn just not for that pattern.

Oh, I would have cried! Suggestions for patterns : Jade Flower and Ojo de Deus from BatCat Designs. I did Jade Flower in a very similar yarn and it looks great in person!

But there's no point continuing if it's not right, right?

I think you might have nailed it Mary. I like them both!
