Rip it good

After spending the past two days tinking and re knitting I’ve decided that the best course of action is to thread a lifeline and rip back down to the start of the first lace repeat. I mean what is the point of being mad at your knitting when it only took a few hours total to get to that point anyway? This time there will be lifelines and stitch markers involved. In the process I ripped the yarn a few times, now I’m going to have to pick the stitches up and start again.

Happy humpday

I took the plunge and signed up for the beekeeping class. I’m not entirely sure what I”m getting myself into as I’m not even sure where the bees will go. I have 2 spots in our yard picked out, but I’m nervous about annoying the neighbors. I also asked my dad if his club would mind hosting a hive. They have a huge amount of land and are surrounded by state forest.

I’ve been working on Evenstar. 4 rows last night, another 4 today. Something is looking off to me so I stopped where I was. I find it best to sleep on it before doing a rip or major tink back. I’m a slow knitter so going back a few rows is very annoying.

I’m really pretty smart… I swear

I spent about an hour tonight wrestling with a SWATCH because I was reading the k4tog on the chart as k3tog. That’s right an hour of tinking and reknitting on a 33 stitch swatch (that I’ve done once already) because I can’t read a chart.

The good news is my swatch is done and it seems to be the right size. That means I can start my Evenstar mystery shawl tomorrow.
