Brea mess

Sometimes I am such a mess! Since I fell in love with the Brea Bag pattern I focused on it and I really wanted to do it in this week end (knowing that I still have to finish my crochet blanket and I have to start knitting for the homeless...).

Every time I step by Knitaly's blog I'm more and more exited about this lovely knitted bag. The only problem is I am toooooooo messy.

I've started the bag three times now. The first time I used a single strand of yarn and the knitting needles were too big, so the texture was too large. So I undid it. The second time I used two strands together, but I miscounted the stitches and I had to undo it. The third (I really thought it was the LAST) time, I switched again to a single strand and I used thinner needles. But, although I've been very careful counting the stitches, I'm at the end of first row and... I have two stitches in excess. *____* I'm hopeless. I guess I'll start again tomorrow...

Oh yes, I've had projects that have taken much time and effort to get off the ground. Hang in there, Justine! It's beautiful yarn and a lovely pattern. :o)

I felt a bit discouraged knitting my shell tank, luckily the bag ran easily, so I understand you! Don't give up!
