Athena, for me this time. Really.

My third project at Crafty Mom Weekend was another Athena neckwarmer. This is the fourth; the first three were gifted and sampled away. How do I know that this one is going to be mine, for sure?

I made a mistake on the edge of the first rectangle of a tier, and didn’t realize it until I was all the way around. (We were watching a movie…) There were a couple loose hang-y strands staring at me. I couldn’t face ripping the entire tier back, so I fudged it. I picked up the stitches for the next rectangle one stitch inside the edge, instead of on the edge. It hardly shows from the front; you’d have to know where to look. I’d hate to give a defective(!) knit as a gift, so this one *must* be mine, right? I’ll be happy to finally have my own!

It’s not done yet; I had one more project that was begging to be worked on. More in the next post…

  1. I don’t think I could knit this watching TV, I might need to be on a desserted island or something with no animal life either, LOL

  2. You should have messed up sooner! :D

  3. I can’t sit still and just watch tv so I reserve “mindless” knitting for that. Although I still botch up now and then when I’m working on the “mindless” stuff.
