This Was Bound to Happen

The Arrowhead Cowl is no more.  I lost control of the pattern, and I am hopeless at correcting in-the-round mistakes.  So, the yarn went back to the ball.  If I have to rip a project apart, I very, very seldom ever cast on for the same thing right away.  I don't know why, really.  

Also, if I have difficulty with a pattern, I'm unlikely to return to it.  I will probably never make an Arrowhead Cowl because this one went badly.  Again, I don't know why that is.  But it's as if I am physically unable to read the pattern, or move my hands and fingers.

Rupert, ever stalwart, commiserates.

  3. I hate frogging things and rarely will but once I do, I'm often done too. Only way I'll continue is if I immediately start again the second I frog- and then I must work past where I had been before or I'll abandon it. There's so much torture in it.
