This is a post for Wanda(and anyone else, but specifically Wanda). You see; I promised Wanda progress on my Bayerische sock by the next time I saw her. Well, I'm sure I'll see her this evening and I have a story for her beforehand :)
Last night I sat down on the couch with my Bayerische sock with the cuff done and I was ready to begin the charts for the leg of the sock. I thought what a great time to work on this; I'll have lots of knitting time because the season finales of "The Office" and "Grey's Anatomy" were on last night.
So I begin the charts. I have never cabled without a cable needle and I wasn't about to start on size 0 needles and Lorna's Laces sock yarn. Of course, there is no cable needle(in my possession anyhow)small enough for that itty bitty stuff. So Michelle had suggested that I use one of my seaming needles (and it works great by the way). Anyway, I'm moving merrily along through "The Office" finale. And not that this is the time for the discussion, BUT there is A LOT of Dwight in me.
Then "Grey's" came on and there is WAY too much you need to be focused on during that show, plus the added distraction of my DH who came home during the middle of it and Diva and Rage running amok through the house. SOOO, I get to the end of one of the charts which should signal the end of a needle and low and behold there are 4 stitches still on my left needle--that's bad, very bad. I take a deep breath and start frogging. Things went pretty well for a while, THEN I lost a stitch. I mean really lost it and it was night time and I was making a bigger mess trying to fix it. Which is when I decided to RIP IT ALL out and start over.
So here is where I am now:
8 rows BEHIND where I started last night.
The moral of the story is do not knit on something challenging while you are trying to pay attention to something else.
So, Ms. Wanda, I will see what I can get done this afternoon and I apologize for not having more done :)
