Curse of the red yarnThe red yarn is cursed. Of this, I am certain.
This afternoon I cast on for another ribbed red scarf. I messed up in the first five rows and had to frog (again). I cast on (again!) for (yet) another red scarf. I couldn't keep my counting straight and messed up the ribbing. (Counting to four...who knew it could be so hard?).
At this point, I gave up on ribbing and decided to try a drop stitch pattern. I cast on and screwed that up around row 15. I set the needles down before I gouged out my eyeballs and walked away.
Why can't I knit tonight? I'm so frustrated. This has never happened to me. Ack!
I think I'll frog the red scarf (AGAIN!!!) and start on something totally different tomorrow. Obviously, the red yarn and I were not meant to be friends.
On a totally different topic, I'm transfixed by this website. I find it absolutely fascinating.
No snow flying here yet, but it's gotten cold. It was 70 today and it's now 28. My electric blanket is on and warming my bed right now. :) I'm giving up on knitting for tonight and heading to dreamland.
