So, like many people, I have arthritis in two joints in my right thumb. It doesn't act up all the time, but it was starting to twitch when I was racing to finish the Secret Yarnination. Of course I ignored it and knit my bu— ...er, thumb off over the past few weeks. So now I have a bum thum for a little while.
So last night I thought I'd better take it easy. I figured it was time to figure out poor Hedera's booboo and that was mostly frogging and counting, right?
Frog. Reknit a row. Wait, that's not right. Something's off with the count. Frog back further. Reknit. No, not it yet. Hrmm. Frog yet further. Wait, now I'm just at the pick-up stitches point. That's too depressing. I need to knit some on it so I don't feel like I'm leaving it further back than before.
Heh. Taking a break, yah. But at least the booboos are gone!
But I was good after that — all I did to my darling Leaves was to insert a lifeline (all the progress is from Weds. night, honest).
My first lifeline! I'm so excited. (Edited to add a link to a good Web page on lifelines, VERY useful in lace.)
