The Good and the Bad

The good news is that I have one mitt done of the pair for Karen. I successfully adapted the pattern from chunky to DK weight yarn.


The bad news:


I had a “little” sock knitting mishap.

Note to self: don’t knit with a headache.

At least I found all 60 stitches after ripping a third of the gusset and the entire heel (I mis-centered the heel flap by 3 stitches–quite noticeable in a cable-rib pattern, at least noticeable after knitting the entire heel and a third of the gusset).

I’m going to bed.

In the words of the immortal Scarlett O’Hara, “Tomorrow is another day.”

  • I didn’t realize that about Teresa of Avila. I love her comment after falling off the donkey about how God treats his friends :o)

    “One day, they say, Teresa was riding a donkey from one of her convents to another. When they came to a big mud-puddle, the sassy donkey balked and threw the saint right into the muck. St. Teresa, always in touch with God, said, ‘Lord, why this?’ He answered, ‘That is the way I treat my friends.’ Teresa came back, ‘Then no wonder You have so few!


  • Poor yarn…frogging pics always make me a little sad. I’m glad you found all the stitches again b/c that part is horribly frustrating for me.

  • Ouch! I’ll tell you the little lesson I learned when I don’t feel good and try to knit……STEP AWAY FROM THE YARN!!!

  • Uck. Oh, I’m sorry. I’m sure you’ll wind up the yarn & have another go… in a few days’ time!

    (My projects used to look like this when Toby was a puppy!)

  • Oh, no. Sorry about the mishap, but glad you found all the stitches. I’ve found “don’t knit lace when sick” after having to tink five rows of a shawl recently. *sigh*

    The mitt looks good though.
