Sometimes things don’t always go as planned. The pair of gloves didn’t work out. The colors didn’t contrast enough to make the pattern stand out. I screwed up the amount of stitches several times. I frogged the whole thing (more then once)  

But just because things don’t go as you planned, doesn’t mean the out come has to be bad. 

Over the weekend my friends and I planned a beach trip. Communications were poor, and messy, and we got the beach later then expected. Yet, I still got to snorkel all the way out to that island. I saw starfish, clownfish, and dove for sand dollars. It was a hard swim, there wasn’t a lot to see, but it was still worth it. I saw a different side of the ocean and did something people don’t do everyday.  

So don’t worry… just because it isn’t going your way, doesn’t always mean it’s going to be terrible. 


So, I’ve been seeing the campside shawl everywhere and I’ve decided that I need one in my wardrobe. So, I’m frogging these bmfa socks I started awhile ago.

Latest project! I’ve only made dishcloths once before, but my sister is setting up a new kitchen so I figured she could use these. The bicolored one is supposed to be a frog, but I’m not too impressed with the pattern. It will still work just fine though! Also, discovered that I like “I Love This Cotton” waaaay more than “Peaches and Creme.” It’s softer and a lot easier on the hands.
