The good news is: I bound off my commissioned Find Your Fade this weekend! Even got it washed and blocked too! As I mentioned in my last post, I decided to do the last section by fading back to the first color with the leftovers. That didn’t go exactly as expected, as I ran out of Color A with something like 12 rows still to go. At that point, I could have weirdly just picked back up with Color C, or frogged back to where I started fading back and knit longer with Color C. Not surprisingly, I didn’t care for either option. So I figured, what the heck, just bind off early, it won’t matter that much! Well. That’s debatable.
Instead of a nice point on top, I have an interesting edge. I don’t hate it, but in hindsight I would have chosen differently. I’ll unpin it tonight and see how it hangs when I try to wear it. I’m not ruling out the idea of undoing the bindoff and frogging back, but man, I’d love to avoid it.
And speaking of avoiding, Grace was a very good girl and knew she wasn’t supposed to walk on this big wet smelly thing on the floor of my craft room.
And now it’s Monday and I’m wondering where the heck my weekend went!
Hmmm, It does look weird all blocked out. However, it might look great when worn. A lot of the intentionally strange blocking choices look great when worn.
I’ve been sitting here on my lunch break thinking about it and I’m going to rip out the last section and reknit it. I’ll be happier about it then!
That’s probably the safest way to go. More work, but if you’re happier with it in the end it’s worth it! (I’m at that point with a sock project, too. I messed up the heel — and while I could leave it as-is, I know I wouldn’t be happy with it.)
