Tales of my garterlac disaster.  My first guess is at some point I went the wrong direction (you know with all that turning), but I'm not sure.  When I realized that all I had left was a decreasing triangle and three top triangles I finally conceded I really screwed up (I kind of already knew it, but I was hoping that if I kept going along everything would work out).

Houston, we have a problem:


I finally concede and decide to bind off (rather than frog), but because of how it was set up, some of it was traditional bind off where there was live stitches and do crochet where there weren't.:


The final disaster, I decided to crochet around the whole thing to give it a more unified edge, do you think everyone will think I intentioanlly made it this way Roll Eyes Wink:


I haven't weaved in the tails yet.  I figure it is still functional and fun and wonky looking.  I will try this again though.  I am sure the second one will be better.

Of course you made it like that intentionally!  I believe you. Wink Cheesy 

It's still lovable in its mutated form.  Smiley

A valiant effort indeed.

Your garterlac looks awesome. I'm jealous.  Embarrassed

Just join the lastest dishcloth swap (signups end on Monday) and if you get partnered with me, I could make you one. Smiley

I think I'm too late  Embarrassed but I just don't have the time now for another swap right now. Maybe they'll be one later and we'll be paired!

Gorgeous!
I'm envious of your goal. I have yet to make 10 this year.  Embarrassed
I'm making a transformer cloth for my boyf in red, too. We're cloth buddies!  Tongue


lol My hubby informed me that making it in blue is wrong..thats what I was using...so I made him rip it out (while i held it,he hates seeing me rip things out so i made him do it) and restarted it in red! Smiley

I get on a roll and I just go with it!

AH, why can't it be made in blue? It's a REAL good thing I got red.

I know I wanted to make it in blue too. But he says its the Decepticon face and not the other and that the Decepticons are blue. So since I was making it for him I decided to change. lol

Ahhh, ok. Did you have major troubles with it? It might just be because vacation knitting is not for me, but I've frogged it like 5 times and redone some rows a few times.  Urgh.

Yes there is a pattern error on row 25.
Row 25 should be as follows.
MB4,K3,P5,K5,P1,K2,P3,K2,P1,K5,P5,K3,MB4

Hope this helps!

This one has send outs August 4th.  There is talk of also having an August one.  I know the feeling of too many swaps.  It is why I had to take a break for a while and I'm a little more choosy about which ones I join.  As you can see, my garterlac is really wonky.  I believe I know where I went wrong though.

Nah, I just have a LOT of crafts to get done and to get my crafty room clean. Teehee, I like how yours started going to the side.  Tongue

Now I understand why this board gets so quiet during these dishcloth swaps, all the action is on the swap board.  When I finally send and Giz receives, I'll post the cloths I did over here.  I don't want this place to die out.  I'm emotionally attached. Wink Cheesy
