Another poem

Another poem about going to the beach in early fall.

Walking up from the beach

On Doing Things Badly

Trying to get over perfectionism, a fixed mindset, and having been a “smart kid,” all by being terrible at things.

Bandana Cowl

Got slightly off on the short rows, probably very early on when I was still figuring out how they worked.

Not quite enough of the yarn to finish, but I like the gist of the project so I might buy some. note: used same style in a different color.

9/9 – restarted. 75 St remaining.

9/11- may have decreased one too many, so I increased back again in the final purl row.

Very cosy. I’m pleased, it’ll be nice when we have cold weather. Interesting effect with the heathered green & the tweedy black.

Update, November 2014: OMG this is amazing in cold weather. A++++ would knit again.
