Phew! I finished project #1 on Friday. Started project #2 on Saturday morning, and was making great progress on it until I got to the 1st lace row. It's over 240 stitches on a size 1 needle, and perhaps starting that row, while watching a special on JFK and chatting with my parents wasn't exactly a good choice. I worked the row once, got to the end and was off by 8 stitches. I realized I had started right in on the lace pattern, when I should have worked the first and last 4 stitches of the row in garter stitch. Stupid mistake, but 4+4=8, so easy to fix on my second try. Right?
Wrong. I un-knit each and every stitch on those tiny size 1 needles. It took forever. And I started the row, a second time, with those 4 stitches of garter stitch. I got to the end and was off again.
At this point, I was getting frustrated. I looked at every stitch I had worked and couldn't see what I had done wrong. I was irritated - this was my plane knitting for today! But, rather than get any more upset about it, I un-knit it for a second time, put it in my checked bag, and pulled out project #3, which I had thankfully packed.
Another project, another Fibre Company yarn (this time Road to China Light), another great free pattern, and I'm a happy
