Well, first of all, I do not like the new Blogger interface. Just for the record. Just in case Blogger even cares.
Secondly, I am knitting away on this project:
By knitting away, I mean I am on row 22 of 200 rows. This should be an easy project, but it didn't start out that way. It required using a provisional cast on of 395 stitches. doG help you if you lose count along the way, which is even possible when using markers. So when I made multiple mistakes in the first several tries I made to get going on this, there was no way on this green earth that I was going to just rip it out and start over with the cast on. No. Way. That would be, I swear, as bad as doing a prep for a colonoscopy when you aren't even having a colonoscopy. It is just that bad. (I apologize for the thought, but I realize I am still offended by the stuff I had to drink for the prep. Bleaghhh..)
But once I got going, I realized that I was going to have to count 395 stitches on each and every row. Are you #$%^&;* kidding me? I moaned and whined, and then I learned that the now Knittergran-certified genius Lucille had found a way around counting all those stitches. It does involve markers and genius.
So Lucille, this is for you:
However, I did make a mistake on a recent row and I counted the stitches to be sure. There is nothing I can do about it, and it won't show since it's at the edge, so it is what it is.
Who's counting? I'm not. Not any more, no matter what.
