Last Spring I took some left over Dream in Color Classy yarn and decided I would try the Fetching pattern on Ravelry. (I believe I got it when it was a free pattern on Knitty.) I was loving it until I bound off the upper edge (Which seemed to bloom out and roll down) and the thumb addition. I thought the construction was very clever - and written well enough. But my construction of this was really lacking. My thumb was really holey and sloppy. It just wasn't well made. **sigh**

I told myself I just needed to do some quality finish work on it and it would look wonderful. I told myself NOT to have single sock syndrome and to JUST KNIT THE 2ND ONE UP! You know how it is though. I paid no attention to my inner voice. I shoved the project bag in another project bag and through a bunch of yarn on top of it all. Go Away! I silently willed it. You make me sad!

Well this weekend I bit the bullet and cleaned out the storage cube ottoman thingy where this and many other knitting projects went to die. I finally had enough time away from knitting this to know it was time to let it go. Rip Rip Rip. Hopefully you will be reincarnated into something wonderful.

You are brave, I hate frogging! I would have stitched the thumb and made do! Very pretty yarn I hope you turn in to something lovely that you are very happy with :)

I hate frogging too! I just know I won't knit a second crappy mitten with this lovely yarn. So it's better to frog the first and make something I will like out of it then to walk around with one crap mitt. :) Not that I would have. I would have stuffed it back in the bag and "hid it" somewhere for another 6 months or longer! I am sneaky like that.
