Well after a week and a half I finally finished the back of the baby jacket. The problem is I made a major mistake and am so upset with myself. I was having trouble with the yard suddenly breaking. Did I rip it back? Of course not, I just tied it off mid row. This happened several times. Some sort of trouble with the yarn. Anyway I have 4 knots in it so do I weave the ends through to make sure they are secure? of course not, since I didn't have a needle tiny enough to weave them through I just figured I'd tie them several times and then cut off the extra I'm sure they will be fine right? Of course not. So I already noticed one coming undone and had to save it and get it tied back up. I am so mad at myself. I am also torn, do I finish it and when I give it to her just warn her it is fragile and hand wash it or do I just scrap all that work? I am not willing to do it again, I'm just too upset about it. If I don't give it to her then I just won't finish it and will move onto a different project but I am just so POd. What do you think I should do?
Finish it and figure, hey it's homemade and not meant to be perfect
move onto something different and figure it a lesson learned
Just do a little at a time and have a fun project to work on when you get tired of it. But don't quit. it will be worth it. I have a baby sweater going and I have almost seven inches done. I am feeling good about that.

awww I am so sorrythat your yarn was not very good.
I think you should do what you feel like doing. .
If you continue and leave the knots in it may come apart after you have given it away.
I know you do not want to restart but maybe you could do a nother one in different yarn or even with a completely different pattern.
Good luck whatever you decide!

You know knitting is almost magical. Something we should keep in out minds. I knit away and start to dwell on how long something is taking and I start to obsess and then suddenly I take notice hwo far along I am and realize I might only have a row or two left. ( I also find out I went to far many times). Anyway in no time you will posting the finished object. Just tell yourself your getting and there and Hocus Pocus it will be done.
