going, going, gone!

The Romulan jacket is no more. I couldn't even give it away - it really was not attractive, and I believe that charity items should be nice enough that you would wear them yourself. Giving this away was not an option - I would cringe thinking that I had inflicted it on someone else.

So the yarn is now wound and waiting for something else. Maybe some hats, maybe a baby blanket of some sort. The yarn is lovely, and deserves better.

The yarn is once again a pile of possibilities. I love that about yarn. Best. Thing. Ever.

That's a great thing about yarn, it's much easier to recycle than fabric!
I have thought alot about this sweater. I never liked it on the cover of the book, but then saw it worked up in a really drapey, slightly fuzzy yarn, and was hooked. But now I'm scared after seeing yours. I've seen a similiar sweater (Liesl? by Ysolda) and wonder if the raglan shaping would be better. But I don't even have yarn yet, LOL!

Good thing it was smooth yarn easily unraveled.

I have learned that frogging is therapeutic, almost like a relief - and now instead of guilt or questions about what you were making, you have a new pile of potential...

I love how you are so decisive with your knitting!

That's one of the advantages of knitting over sewing--recyclability. And every time we frog and recycle, we learn something new. Not a bad trade-off. I'm new to your blog, will follow it regularly.

Yeah, good choice. After seeing the Romulan sweater in person, I would have to agree that the yarn definitely deserves better than that jacket turned out to be!
