Knitting

Crisis averted/WIP Wednesday 10/10/12


ON THE NEEDLES

Ouch!  When I went to take a photo of the ongoing Pretty Maids shawl project to post to WIP Wednesday, I ACCIDENTLY PULLED THE NEEDLES OUT OF THE KNITTING!  My heart just sank.  Seriously, I thought I would throw up when I saw it.  I was three rows from finishing it.   Jeez.  Luckily, I was able to put it back on the needles and am now in the process of tinking it back to a recognizable row to get moving forward on it again.  Even though I know “it’s just knitting”, it’s my knitting and my time invested in it and I love it.  Hopefully, this evening I’ll see forward progress again. 

It’s really hard to make out what it looks like when it’s unblocked lace. Patience, patience and hopefully, it will be finished, washed and blocked by this time next week. 

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.  Albert Pike
