sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Oh, poo!

I finally sat down with my knitting at 9pm. I’ve done a bunch of laundry today, and am about to fire up the machine again. Anyway, I was listening to Brenda Dayne’s podcast, and knit my 6 rows on Granny’s shawl. I’ll have to show you a picture of that soon, it’s 15 inches long, and I am almost done with the 2nd of 9 balls.

Then I picked up Hocks for the daily square. I was starting the 5th row, so I dutifully cast on 15 and picked up 16, and began to knit. I knat the block almost done, and looked down to gloat, when! what do I see???? The block was to be nestled between to other blocks. All pick up, no cast on. RRIIIIIIPPPPPP! There will be no Hocks block today!

This entry is for new knitters. Don’t worry about mistakes. There is nothing you can do with those knitting needles that can’t be fixed. Unless it’s mohair. Then all bets are off.

Oh, I am edging ever closer to the precarious abyss of the swallowtail shawl. I allowed myself to wind a ball of the yarn today. And got the needles out. Must. Resist. The. Lace.
