Stitcher Markers



While stewing in viremia yesterday I watched Battlestar Galactica while working on Rogue sleeves. I had decided nothing fancy, knit 2 at once on straight needles, use the k1p1 rib facing instead of the bias hem, don't knit it up and all would well. Well I did the turning row on the wrong side. I finished the graph and am trying to convince myself that the hem will turn okay. Well I keep thinking of Elizabeth Zimmerman and her saying that if something can be knit in the round it should be. It must be karma, that I messed up the turning row. I am meant to knit the sleeves in the round. But, frogging is so hard to psych up for sometimes, especially since JoSharp Silk Aran Road may shred while frogging.

Just like it is karma I'm sick. I whined so much about work lately I no doubt brought it on myself. I took my flu shot and all, so I don't know what happened.
Must be the negative energy I generated.

I got out the old pliers and made some stitch markers. A girl can't have too many of those, you know, and it they sparkle, all the better! I will channel that positive energy in and hope to be well in time for Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for:)

Lovely stitch markers. Yet another reason why I wish I knew how to knit - so I could collect all sorts of cool stitch markers like these.

Hope you feel better before Thanksgiving!

I dunno. I think it's the cloud cover. I am completely without vigor or initiative today, too, and I was in bed by 8:30pm.

Hope you feel better. Don't lose heart over some frogging. Sick days were made for frogging.

Hi Barb! Long time no chat! So sorry to hear that you're under the weather. It seems to be going around again. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Love those stitch markers! Are the rings the plastic ones that you buy in a pack? Too cool!
