For some reason, blogger won't let me post a title!
I've been knitting on the beach, at the fireworks, around the fire and in the cottage at night. I managed to get all the tote done in time to use the washing machine in the cottage a friend was renting before she left - just before she left. I was up until midnight knitting the pockets and I was literally standing at the machine pulling out the pieces as she locked up! Talk about a knitting deadline LOL
I've moved on to a geometrical scarf that consists of triangles knitted together with increases and decreases. It's fascinating and fun. The only problem is that I forgot/got confused/got too cockey and when it said KSS, I slipped a stitch, knit a stitch, passed slipped stitch over when I should have sliped a stitch, slipped a stitch, knit two together. Really would it have killed me to check a reference book a head of time? I've now done it wrong for 20 rows!? Will it matter? Should I frog? Should I keep going and hope it won't matter? Should I make myself repeat the decreases 20 times on scrap yarn (like having to write "I will check directions when I'm not 100 percent sure" on the chalk board?) Maybe I should just relax - it's just knitting and I am on vacation. I don't have to finish the scarf!
It's just that I bought a bunch of yarns to try some free form knitting and I kind of wanted to finish the scarf first. Why do I put all this pressure on me?
