My Carly Linen Lace Wrap has been finished for a couple of weeks and I do love it.... EXCEPT.... I made a couple of grave errors.
First of all, I determined the knit finished length based on past lace wraps and didn't take into account that the linen doesn't stretch like wool blends. Soooo.....its really shorter than I would like.
So for the past week and a half, I have had it draped over a door, perhaps hoping it would stretch..... to no luck, I might add.
Till today, when I made the decision to take out the bind off and add the additional length that I truly desire. This felt liberating, I had plenty of lace linen yarn left over and soon I would have the lace wrap I wanted. Right? WRONG.
Which leads me to my second error....
Of course, I had woven in that end so well that it was impossible to find. So I decided to cut it, I have plenty of linen, no problem....right?
I don't no how to describe, without using a plethora of curse words, just how difficult it is to take apart the bind-off edge. The linen lace has no give and of course I didn't do a simple bind off...............This may take the better part of today or days to do it.
Kind of reminds me of my Dad's words of wisdom......MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE.
In the long run, I knoiw I will be super happy. Stay tuned for some updated Carly pics.....hopefully soon.
In the meatime, here is a totally random picture for your enjoyment.....
He looks like how I'm feeling ......
