Do you ever have days where you just don't seem to be able to get it right?
Or maybe even weeks?
Frustrating isn't it?
Especially when we're talking about activities that you could usually do in your sleep - but for some reason, you just can't get your act together, no matter how many times you try.
For me, it's the HUMBLE GRANNY SQUARE.
Now I've made The Granny MANY times before, but this past week my efforts have been pathetic. I just can't get my tension right.
I'm supposed to be working on this knee rug for the Nursing Home, but it's doing my head in!
For some reason my tension is all over the place, and the 'squares' aren't sitting at all nicely...
Here's my first effort - I was really unhappy with the way that the greys were so loose compared with the rest of the work
Now the greys were slightly thicker yarns than the navy, so I thought that was the reason for the problems... but then I started a new square, ugh!
This next effort seems to get looser and looser with every round... regardless of which yarns I use!
A little bit of irregularity can be blocked out quite easily - but this is beyond help. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow...
