Things that make me weep (not all bad):
1. Ripping out the scarf pattern in the previous post for the THIRD time. You all were close in your guesses. It is the Montego Bay scarf from IK Spring 2007 issue. Amy Singer is the designer. It's supposed to be an easy pattern, but I keep losing stitches, and frogging it, because I can't pick them back up with all of the YO's. Help! This is an easy lace pattern. How will I knit more complicated lace if I keep doing this? Suggestions please? :(
2. I want to be able to knit slightly more complex lace patterns (I need some sort of progression, don't I), because I just bought three skeins of laceweight from the Wollmeise. The colors are phenomenal, and they make me want to weep (they are that beautiful). I keep fondling them and sniffing them (this might appear as abnormal behavior to muggles, but trust me, it's a perfectly sane gesture to knitters and crocheters alike).
3. I have to work this weekend. This makes me weep. I had today off, and I get Tuesday off next week, but I work Friday through Monday. This past Tuesday was enough to make me weep. I'm not liking the thought of working this weekend, but next weekend I get three days off again (but we spend the Monday after Easter at the hospital for my DD's doctor appts).
4. Lastly, to end on a great note (weeping still involved), and to include the picture of the post - this is my youngest daughter knitting! She said to me today, after we came home from the doctor for her ear (it's infected), that she wanted to learn to knit. Do you know what - she's doing really well for just turning six years old. She asked me who taught me to knit, and I said my Mom and my Nana. And then, bless her heart, she said, "Mommy, if you show me how to knit, then I can teach my children, and they'll know how to knit because you taught me."
WOW! What a legacy!
