I was only going to knit today until I ran out of the first white ball of yarn....since it was the smallest. It seemed like a reasonable and achievable goal.....and yet, I gave up at 10 p.m. and the silly little white ball of yarn simply WILL NOT END! I think my gross underestimation came from running four balls of yarn at once! Silly math! Why on earth am I plagued by math issues on such a daily basis?
Good news though....my flat braid is indeed flat now and not making a helix twist either....but it still doesn't match the pattern shown in the picture with the pattern. It feels kind of like making cookies when you baked chocolate chip cookies and when you get them out of the oven and take a test bite, the cookies are oatmeal raisin instead. How does this happen?
