Lazin' about

Yup... even the bunnies were doing it today.

I did manage to get a couple loads of laundry done, but otherwise, it was mostly knitting - I pulled Lestrange out of her timeout and we seem to be getting along now.

But what happened that made me put her there? Well after eight rows of agonizing 1-1 ribbing, I was finally ready to start on the lace pattern. But I just couldn't get the darn thing set! I tinked painfully back four times, but no matter what I did, I was short stitches at the end.

In the end, I could only find two places where I was off, but that should have resulted in only two stitches short. But I was so fed up by then I tossed he in the corner.

Today when I picked her up I was determined not to tink back again, so I just fudged it. And only a really discerning eye will be able to tell.

So things are flowing freely again
...if not quickly. It still takes about 40 minutes a row, but at least it's lace now, not ribbing. Only 30 more rows to go!

Then I still have to do the bottom ruffle.....

Glad Lestrange decided to behave. :-)

I'd be so fed up with Le Strange by now! And 40 minutes a row!!! Ack!!!

Good for you for persevering :)

Sometimes a fudge is necessary and we need to remember that no-one will be looking at it closely enough to tell anyway!

Oh, the dreaded set up. I can't even imagine the agony with all those stitches.

I had to frog yesterday too. I think it put me in a bad mood??
Your Le strange will be so very lovely.

40 minutes a row. You're my hero. I'm glad you made it work.

I want to be a bunny in your backyard right now. After rushing home to prep for this week I emerged from the kitchen to see the laundry I sorted still in the hallway in the basket. So I'd like to be you with clean laundry too. hehe. Oh, whatever it'll get done eventually :) Happy knitting!
