I’m sad… it’s true. I was so excited about making knucks. I mean, what could be better? It seemed so easy. Then- it wasn’t! I even followed the pattern! Actually I followed the pattern more closely than perhaps I’ve followed any pattern to date, and I was using needles that I’m not sure what size they were- but I think they’re 5’s which is a size up from what they tell you to use in the pattern. Here I am happily working on the fingers. I tried each one on, made sure it was an appropriate length and width. Going so well! I’m thinking- I can make a ton of these before Christmas! Knucks for everyone!
So, then it happened. I got to the joining row. The stressful row. The row of crushed dreams. I read the pattern 5 or 6 times preparing myself for the ssks and knit togethers. I’m ready! I started- and finished and it was pretty painless. I moved onto the next row, and looked at my work. It is so small!! I can’t get my hand into it! I can’t decide if I’m over reacting or if I should scrap it- it’s not worth the aggravation.
