Before, during and after

I hate getting things wrong.  I hate having to redo things.  But sometimes, there’s just no alternative.

After recently posting an update of the crochet club, the wonky shape of the piece above kept popping into my head and I knew I would have to rework the rows which looked too tight and pulled in on the top.

Easy I thought, I’ll undo the top few rows and crochet them again, maybe using a slightly larger hook.

However, I got myself into a real ‘fankle‘ (sometimes only a Scottish word will do!) and had no idea why I couldn’t undo the rows easily.

 

I’ve since worked it out because during the original make up the piece was crocheted on both the top and bottom edges, so the edge I was trying to rip back was really the bottom, not the top with would have undone easily! 

After a bit of frustration and a bit of ‘that’ll teach me’ I started all over again!  I am so glad I did.  This piece is now the right shape and size and looks brilliant!

Sometimes it takes a little pain to get to the gain!!!
