What do you do when you have an extra hour to throw away?
c) Watch TV
Today I spent most of the day working on taxes, and then rewarding myself: Did a little yoga (I said "little") and I knitted. The wind blew upwards to 50 mph and my eyes are as watery and scratchy as they usually are at this time of year. I didn't go outside. That's what I blame... It was late, and I thought, one more row... and I'll go to bed. That's when I looked down and there it was. My teeny tiny stitches on size 2.5 mm needles were ... not quite right.
What is that? I dropped down a couple of rows, and picked them up again. Still it looked twisted or something. Then my eyes cleared just long enough to discover a loop. A beginner's mistake... I had picked up the knitting in the middle of a row and started off in the wrong direction. It was at least 3 rows back or 4 depending on which side you were counting. Humility. That's what knitting is all about. There's the little tell-tale loop.
This is a shawl that has crossed the Pacific Ocean--twice. Started last August, and bowed out for many other projects. Ravelry link.
June or bust for this baby!
