We weathered the storms just fine last night and got a good bit of rain, which we needed. It’s been overcast and in the high 40’s all day. My arthritis has been letting me know that the weather has changed. Again.
I’ve been working on this garter stitch potholder and as you can tell I am grafting one of the openings. I kept knitting until the edges met when folded together so I broke off the yarn and started weaving. It took me several minutes to get my mind around the sequence for grafting garter stitch but then I was off and weaving. Well, sort of.
Problem number one: My grafted seam is waaaay too loose.
Problem number two: I have several mistakes in weaving that I didn’t catch as I made them.
Problem number three: My frustration level is growing because the only thing I can do at this point is take out the grafting. It’s tedious and cotton yarn tends to cling to the stitches making it difficult to undo them.
Potholder is now in Time Out. I’ll deal with it later and find something else to work on. And now it’s time to think about dinner and I’m so not in the mood. I’m thinking….take-away for dinner. I’ll consult Brad and see if he has any suggestions…
Aaaaand….Chili’s Chicken Crispers and a Margarita it is! They’ll have our order in twenty-three minutes. We are out the door. BBL.
…and the Margarita is good, too…but I’m still not interested in knitting this evening. At least, not the potholder. I might work on a pair of socks. Dinner was great, it was a good idea and well worth the drive to Sherman to pick up our order. I’m going to nurse the rest of my drink and finish watching Big Bang Theory on TV.
Have a safe and blessed Monday evening, ya’ll.
