WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!
I have been knitting for over a week to try to work on a little lacy cowl for a friend of mine. She has a Bar Mitzvah to photograph at the last part of May.. the 20th to be exact. The family is Orthodox, so she will need to have her head covered in Temple. This will be perfect for her. A cowl will lay around her neck outside, be lovely over her head inside, and is so, so light that she can wear it, even on the hottest days of the summer.
I hate this thing. It is a very easy little lace pattern. Really it is. Two rows, one pattern row, one knit row, and every damn row I was off on the stitches. I HATE to count stitches on each row. In my arrogance I checked the errata on line to see if the pattern was written wrong, you know, missing a step? I found out that I was reading the pattern wrong, and then was okay.. like, "All right, I was just reading this wrong.. I'm such a goober, but it happens."
So I sat down to work on this again, and yet again... YET AGAIN I am off on the stitches... I was so mad, so fire breathing dragon mad that I did this.....
