So, last night I messed up garter stitch.  To set the scene:

Pretty inspiring, right?  It was dark, I was tired, Alice was not holding up her end of the bargain (just her end, um middle, of the couch) and before I knew it, I’d strayed from the pattern in a minor, but highly annoying fashion.  In fact, I’m not even sure I did stray … just that somewhere along the line I’d done something and now it didn’t match.  Either make the same mistake, or fix the new one, I guess.  Anyway, tinking back fuzzy, loosely-plied handspun singles is even worse than tinking lace.  But I will perservere.

That’s about it.  I am very much looking forward to the weekend.

  1. ugh. friday makes everything better. (also, bacon. but i digress.) alice, you are supposed to be helping!

  2. Bummer about the garter stitch snafu…
    ‎As the Yarn Harlot says, “experienced knitters don’t make fewer mistakes than new knitters. they make bigger ones faster.”

    However, Friday = yay! Sleep + coffee + Halloween treats + cat-snuggling are on my agenda.

  3. The weekend is here! Seriously, it is just about the best invention ever. Two days off, perfectly positioned after every single Friday? Genius.

    Haha, I like that Yarn Harlot quote. So true. On the plus side, your yarn is still pretty even when the garter stitch is messed up.
