A trip to the Frog Pond

My Alpine Knit Scarf took a trip to the frog pond this afternoon. I wasn't 100% happy with the needles/yarn combination I was using (KP Alpaca cloud on size 4 Options) the solid sections were a little to open for me. I had a mistake a few rows back and PMS from haties. So, Rip-it Rip-it it went. I have a two week old photo, but nothing showing the progress on the rose leaf section. I will re-knit it on smaller needles, but the Cap Shawl has been calling my name. I am going to down size the yarn to Misti Alpaca Lace in a pale pink.

Sorry about the frogging. I've worked with Alpaca Cloud a few times and I usually use a size 3 needle with it.

I'm sorry to hear about the frogging. I hope it works out better next time.

Thanks. The 3's I have right now are too blunt to do the P2tog's, but I will try again on size 2 *gulp* straights that I have that are pretty pointy.
