Yarn Along

Guess what!  I fixed the hole in my BSJ!  Well, it’s still a bit funny looking but it’s not a hole.  And I didn’t have to frog more than a few stitches.  I’m a little amazed at myself.  I might even be able to finish it before July 🙂 

Of course there is a reason I was fighting with that.  Sadly, I discovered I had dropped a stitch in the shawl I’m working on.  Sometime last week.  😦  I’m going to have to undo the entire lace section.  And surprisingly I haven’t cried or cursed or anything.  I’m remarkably zen about it.  We’ll see if I can manage to hold onto that while picking up all those stitches.  I just hope I only lose one week’s worth of knitting and not three.  I had even gotten three rows knit while waiting at the lab for my orange glup glucose test Monday morning.  Then I found the unraveling.  At least it explains my off numbers but too bad I didn’t investigate more closely at the time.   I’ll spare you the gory details of a photo. 

And yet again, in spite of being surrounded by piles of books I’m still not reading anything.   Oh I read bits here and pieces there, books to the boys, articles online.  But no book going at the moment.  I did place a hold on Treasures from the Attic.  I just haven’t been in the mood to start anything else.  Other than other projects.  Maybe next week I’ll really have something done?  A tired Mama must have dreams of something… other than dishwashers and sleep 🙂 

So I’ll be linking up with Ginny at the Yarn Along today and Crunchy Catholic Momma’s Stash Bash tomorrow.  Because making progress is good.  And hope springs eternal, maybe soon I’ll have a finished object to show off.  I wonderful if it will be knitting, quilting, or a baby at this rate…

    Oh tough luck there Kate………I would be bawling my eyes out, with a bit of foot stamping thrown in for good measure, at the thought of having to frog back a lace section……….pretty shawl though.

  3. Well done for staying zen on your frogging. I hope it woks out this time round. I have had to frog what I am knitting twice now! At least the wool I am using is lovely to work with. Jacinta

    Sorry to hear about your dropped stitch! But good job on fixing the hole. Knitting is a love/hate kind of craft sometimes!

I'd love to hear from you!
