It's Only Knitting...

Or "I Hope I Never See This *&%*# Pattern Ever Again".

Just kidding. These just about drove me insane, but it's because of ME that they had so many problems after all. These are the ones that suffered being ripped completely about 3 times, and had Sasha chew up their needle. Oh, it just went on and on. And it was all on mitt #2 too. She just didn't want to cooperate.

This was the last doozie I did. Why did I look at the cables and think to myself "hey, that doesn't look quite right" and just keep on knitting. AND BIND OFF? Must be the flu and Fibro issues going on in my house this month....

But, Scarlett was right, "tomorrow is another day". You just have to buck up and rip out your bind off, tink back to the right row and start over.

Yes, a knitter can do anything. (But this is clearly why I don't knit shawls and bigger things like sweaters). And in the end it's love.


Miss J loves them. She wanted them. She got them. All that matters is making my baby girl happy.

Pattern: Yummy Mummy Mitts
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock - Tiziano Red
Size 2 Magic Loop

Latest Bummer: missed my knitting meeting yesterday due to a nasty migraine and the pouring outside of cats and dogs. But I was missed. And that always feels good. I <3 Knitters.

I hate when a project has so many problems! They turned out fabulous though! What a lovely color too! How was the malabrigo sock? I haven't worked with that yet but then its malabrigo so I'm sure it was yummy!

Hope you're all feeling better!
