Frustration

June 29th, 2008

I ended up having a conversation during a working row of the laminaria the other night. A stupid stupid conversation that left me with one extra stitch by the time I got to the end of the row. After hours and hours of trying to recover from it (whatever it was that I did wrong – I can’t tell at the moment), and tinking back to the halfway point I am conceding defeat and will rip back to my last save point. I am quite gutted.

I would actually like to walk away from it for a while, but if I want to meet my birthday deadline, I need to keep going. This is only the first repeat of the blossom chart, so there is a long way to go yet.

The second Biological Clock sock is ready to be bound off, which is both good news and bad. It was a lovely easy knit that had enough in it to keep my attention. I am still undecided whether they will be for me or a present for someone else. And I am not sure what I have in my queue to take it’s place. I think that makes me more of a process knitter than a product knitter. hmmm

I do have a hat and fingerless mittens that are a long overdue project for a friend. The hat is the most important, but the mittens will be a more interesting knit. And the yarn is worsted weight, so it will be quick too.

I am also making another pair of the cabled slippers for my dad. I am stalling somewhat on it though, as the yarn is vile to knit with and I don’t like knitting the same pattern twice. It would be good to be able to send them back with our current visitor, but I somehow doubt that they will be finished by then.

In other news, I am going for another MRI tomorrow – this time of my nerves. Hopefully they will find whatever is causing all this pain and it is easy to fix. This means that I need to spend time tonight taking all my piercings out *again*. But on the the other hand, it means another trip to Body Manipulations tomorrow to get them all put back in again and maybe have something else put in. Everything has it’s up side, I suppose.
