Woe Is Me!
WELL......since I have no pictures to post of my knitting....(it is too sad...didn't want to depress anyone!). I thought I would post this picture.....as this is pretty much all I have of my socks....a couple of balls of yarn and my sticks!! I have ripped and re-knit the infamous socks so MANY, MANY times my Wildefoote yarn is in shambles....shredded as if ripped by wild animals!! After some encouraging words from Emily (a.k.a. yarn miracle, did I also mention I don't know how to add links?).....I am not giving up!! Besides.....it is a matter of PRIDE.....my DH upon seeing me pull out my knitting seems to take great delight in asking me...."oh...is that another pair of socks you are knitting?".....knowing FULL well by the many "knit fits" I have thrown it is STILL the same pair!!!! I think I'll knit him some really "colorful" socks (he's color blind)....then hide all his other socks, forcing him to wear them to work as punishment....Hee! Hee! Hee! Ah...revenge is SWEET!!!!! I feel empowered already!!!!
I can't say enough about Emily.....how kind she has been to this fumbling beginner!!! We have shared many "knitting consultations" not to mention all her encourgement!!!
I was able to get to the YS to have my vest pattern written out....so at least that is one positive thing.....oh....and I am working on a baby blanket.....so maybe things aren't so bad after all!!
Hope to have the weekend free to knit and hopefully have something worthy of posting Monday!
