Do you ever think that the Knitting Gods are against you?
I have experienced the "black hole" of knitting where you knit and knit and knit and your knitting doesn't seem to grow. You can even measure it and it stays the same but this isn't the case this time. The scarf is knitting along just fine and it's getting larger with each row.
Then I made the big mistake. At Monday Night Knitting I declared that I would have the scarf finished by Friday for our morning knitting group.
I know you should never tempt fate but I was feeling super confident. I had it all worked out that if I knit 5 rows of 300+ sts a day I would have it finished. I was actually ahead of schedule by a day and a half so what could go wrong, right?
Well, let me show you.
I was just knitting a plain knit row. Nothing fancy and SNAP. Sigh.....
Thank goodness my stash of needles is almost as big as my yarn stash. I've found another needle in perfect condition and I'm ready to continue knitting. I'm still sticking with my Friday deadline. What else could go wrong, right?
