To Cece, Or Not To Cece

I decided to cast on for Cece, after all, it's time I made something for myself (again). Here's a progress shot:

I am considering ripping her out. I have to tink 2 more rows as I made a mistake in the lace pattern, but I am also not really loving knitting with the Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. The yarn is splitty, and the color - Rue - is much prettier in the skein than knitted up. I'm just not loving this yarn/pattern combination. What do you think, should I persevere or visit the frog pond?

While you are commenting anyway, if you know what species of plant this is, would you let me know? It sprung up in my garden and I just don't know what to make of it.

I think your knitting looks loverly, I would love to learn to knit lace someday. Don't know if you should frog or not - depends on if it's worth it to you to persevere or not...:)

Cute plant! LOL! But I don't know what kind it is either. Sorry. :)
Nice blog. Have a great day!

It's a lot of knitting if you don't love it. Start it over with something new. Life's too short.

I believe that's Beegle Balm. Maybe Doginwood.

Definitely a dogwood, and a very fine specimen it is. If you aren't loving the knitting then let it be gone.

Cornus Beaglus Recumbent (recumbent Beagle Dogwood)? Whatever it is appears to be dormant…
:-D

I think Cece looks pretty but if you don't like it, don't keep going.

Doggus Snooreiz, of course. Also found growing wild on couches, futons,and sunny spots on the floor. I have two here in Kentucky!

I like Cece and I like the color. However, if you don't like it, don't force yourself through it. Life's too short.

That is definitely a dog wood!!
They are very rare with that type of coloring and need alot of water and sunlight. You are so lucky!! I want one too.
Cece is lovely...but I agree with everyone else, if it's not fun, Don't do it!!
