I need to take my own advice!
The last time you saw my Hitchhiker, it looked like this:
I knew it was awful. I knew it. But I didn't want to "waste" all that knitting time, so I told myself that it would look fine when it was twisted around my neck. Still, a little voice in the back of my mind told me that I was lying.
Finally, I could no longer ignore that little voice and I ripped out the entire thing. Then I did what I should have done a long time ago. Instead of having big blocks of colors, I striped the sections, knitting two rows with one color and then switching to the other.
Much better, don't you think? It is still kind of random, but in a fun way.
