don't MESS with the knitter

Oh, yes, it was a nice hat and I was solidly into its crown decreases when I noticed miscrossed cables here and here and here and here and...oh, crud.

I'm nothing if not consistent. Screw-ups all 'round!
Yeah, so it was a nice hat, but it will be a better hat on the second try.

Debbie: I made the pickled watermelon rind this week and now I have wrapped it in bacon and broiled it to take to the female cousins party today. I just tested one to make sure before packing it up. If I must say so myself--Delicious. Now I did not can the watermelon this time because I wanted to make sure. But I may just freeze it. I used the Cooks recipe,1936,149175-240195,00.html. A simple 3-day preparation.

an old quilter's saying (probably attributed to a wise knitter as well !!) is "if you can't see it from the back of a galloping horse, then don't fix it".....Debbie, I could not see your boo boos without the blue arrows !!! However, I would have tinked it myself, so I understand totally, LOL. It IS a beautiful hat indeed.

ouch! we are our own worst critics arent we! I finished the girasole blanket recently and noticed once stretched out that in one small section i am one stitch off , barely noticable. But i notice it! At least blankets are usually scrumpled up, smile

CRUD is right! Oh oh oh. WHen it's handmade you just KNOW you won't be settled until it's right. Don't you hate that?

We have been watching the first season of Lost on Netflix and when I knit and watch, I fumble a LOT on my knitting. Grrrrrrrr.
