Inconsolable

I was working away on my shawl tonight while talking with my mom when the unthinkable happened. I dropped at least 2 stitches in the middle of doing a purl 2 through the back loops.

Who in the @#$%@#$^ thought up that stitch???????????????????

Because of decreases on the row before, I wasn't able to figure out where the damn stitches went. So I've got to tink at least 2 rows and more than likely it will be 4 or more. I dunno why Renee had to put pattern stitches on both sides of the darn shawl. I'm at least 4 rows from a plain purl row that may be fairly easy to figure out. Maybe I'll take another circ and try to pick up the row as is without tinking all the way. Cross your fingers for me.

Also cross your dang fingers that I'm lively enough this weekend to freakin take some pictures of the projects, yarn, tools and books that aren't pissing me off right now.

sigh

Time to sleep. I'm back to work again and it is a long drive to work.

Oh, I feel your pain. Well, not really, since I haven't graduated past the basic stockinette stitch, but I sort of get it. If I make a mistake, I have to frog the whole damn thing, even if I am almost done.
Good luck with it.

Don't you just love those funky-ass stitches that require a third arm?

Me neither. ;-)

I am lace impaired, so, I feel your pain.
