Sometimes Frogging is the Only Answer!

One of the downsides of designing is that sometimes your original idea does not work.  And then Frogging is the only answer.  That is what is going with my current design.  I am about to frog 12 hours of knitting.  Not just plain knitting but double knitting with beads, and fringe and and and……. you can see me crying right now can’t you.  All knitters have been there – the moment when you know this is really not going to work.  We can fool our selves for only so long!

Meet Turtle Flower Gauntlets – DE structured!

The gauntlet will need some rethinking and some simplification I think!
