Just when I think I’m pretty organized with my knitting, I come across something that makes me wonder how I make it through each day. This morning I was packing and making sure I have everything I need for my trip to MO. I noticed some things in the chair at the end of the table and I picked them up. One was this knitting project.
For the life of me, I could not figure out what this is. I kinda remember starting it because it has some weird line of stitches that aren’t normal. Three balls of yarn, all wound, no indicator as to what the yarn is. I was thinking it was Manos Fino but wasn’t sure. It could be Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light. I don’t usually use single ply yarn for a sweater but . . if this is a sweater . . I did.
I thought maybe I could figure it out by searching the patterns in Ravelry using the following criteria:
- Fingering Weight Yarn
- Pattern in my Library
- 900 to 1200 yards
Nope, that didn’t ring any bells. I went back through the blog because surely I would have blogged about it. I searched Manos and Fino and that didn’t bring anything up.
I looked through the Knit Companion and didn’t see it. I was hoping I’d find it on the iPad Mini when I get to MO. Then I remembered . . I’m using a newer version of Knit Companion (NG) and there are still files over in the old Legacy version so I checked there and . . Bingo! Found it. Here’s the blog post. I knew if I did it . . it’s on the blog. I started it in September, 2017. No wonder I don’t remember it. I don’t remember what I started yesterday!
In the blog post, I said: “I’m using Mechita despite my better judgment. I’m not much of a fan of single ply yarn but there’s so much of it out there and so any people love it, maybe I’m missing something. I’ll try again.”
I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I think I’m going to rip it back. Single ply just doesn’t suit me for a sweater. I’ll find the other three skeins of yarn that goes with it and put it on a bag and think about it til I get back but . . I’m pretty sure I’m going to rip it out.
And, I’m going to do better with keeping up with my projects.
Best of luck! I just said the same thing about my Rug Hooking projects started and not finished. I have a plan if I can just work the plan and still be able to cook and clean. Hey! It’s better than it having a plan, right?

Maybe Vince has taken up knitting! 😉
One thing hasn’t changed in that time – you are still working on a lot of things at once. =)
Here’s a suggestion: when my mother and I used to knit, every time I started a project I would write down the pattern name, yarn name, and date begun on a piece of paper and keep it in the project bag. It might help you to do this too!
