Sorry for the screaming, but it's 5 am and I've been up knitting for awhile. Joanie and the neighbors surely wouldn't appreciate the volume I've pent up, so you get to hear me rant.
I was unable to sleep well and woke up far earlier than my usual "I can't sleep early mornings"--I found out I have no brake lights when Joanie followed me home from the Coffee Beanery last night. I had big plans with a 6 year old this morning that are going to have to be rescheduled so I can resolve the safety issues, so I'm a bit upset. Wondering how a well planned day is going to be messed up can really screw with your sleep schedule, you know?
What does a knitter do when upset? KNIT!
I picked up my Pi shawl and began working on the edging, hoping to get it finished today. I was peacefully listening to some podcasts and making REALLY good progress. A few minutes ago, I picked it up and I could actually see the light at the end of the tunnel! I counted the stitches and I had only (ONLY) 182 stitches left to bind off! That's 18 repeats of 20 rows! NEARLY DONE! Just for kicks and giggles, I went to count how many repeats I'd already done. . .
Found a mistake.
8-10 repeats back.
Right about the place I began knitting this morning.
(Insert scream here.)
Jumped into the pond and frogged. . .
Too bad I didn't just stay in bed and pretend to sleep this morning. At least now I'll have something to do when I'm waiting for my car to be fixed (There's a recall that involves the brake lights that I thought didn't apply to me--why I think I'm immune, I have no idea--you'll be able to find me at the dealer later today. . .)
Hope your knitting goes much better than mine today.
