Just Ducky

I took this knitting kit with me to a local gun show this week-end, thinking I would be able to get a good start on it...........WRONG!

Well, I guess it didn't help that I have never changed yarn on a project before and of course this

is a constant requirement for this pattern, nor have I ever followed directions from a chart

Need I say more........ I did manage to get half way up the duck and then rip it all out (fortunately this blanket is made in three strips)....for the third time.
Well, I am back home where things are more quiet and I have more than just my lap to hold three balls of yard and the directions on so Maybe I can make it work. Why in the world did I buy such a kit? Well, it was only $9.00 on ebay and included everything including the needles ....yep, there's a fool born every minute.

It's hard to do two things at one time - you'll get it. It's going to be pretty. Sandie

I've got confidence in you. Where there is a will there is a way unless you don't have the "will" then there is file 13:)

Hey all...thanks for your encouragement and support. Yes, I did get one strip nearly finished but have to tell isn't anything like the picture. The yarn is very thin and wavy so it has big holes like all through it...well, I have decided to use the yarn for some other project but low and behold...I did make the duck from the chart and I did make a multitude of yarn changes!
