SBQ: Starting Over?

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion of the Week is:

Do you have any projects that you have scrapped and start­ed over? What made you start over from scratch?

I can only remem­ber one, and I restart­ed it at least twice, maybe three times. It was the Celtic Cross designed by Deb Davis for Y‑Knot Designs. I think I tried start­ing with one of the cor­ners but kept find­ing myself off a bit, so I frogged every­thing and start­ed from the mid­dle, as I usu­al­ly do. I still kept get­ting off by just a thread here or there, so I do think I frogged all that again, then start­ed from the cen­ter again but work­ing in a dif­fer­ent direc­tion. I’m very pleased with how it turned out, but I think it was the last piece I did on linen instead of evenweave.

Cyn is Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.

One thought on “SBQ: Starting Over?

  1. I nev­er do man­age to real­ly start in the mid­dle of a chart­ed design. I almost always spend a sil­ly amount of time match­ing the chart to the fab­ric, then start­ing in the upper-left corner. 

    I don’t think I could list all the things I’ve scrapped and start­ed over. Frankly, it’s so frus­trat­ing when I do, I try not to think about it too much!
