TINK

TINK = To unknit, to unravel. Or IMHO, to pull out your hair when you realize you've done 24 repeats of two rows, instead of actually reading the pattern to see that it says, do a TOTAL of 24 repeats (which means actually doing 23 repeats). I spent 2.5 hours TINKING (see above knitter's definition) 2 rows of garter stitch to unknit 8 stitches from my count (please note there were 291 stitches instead of 283 at the end of my increase rows - UGH). So.............I'm almost finshed with yoke.
No pictures today, but I can reccomend watching "The Secret Life of Bees." You can read it too, which I did a long time ago. The movie is a pretty darn good adaptation of the book, and I was pleasantly surprised with the chosen cast of characters. Rent it or buy on blue ray or DVD today! :)
Next post with pictures, I promise!

I read that book a long, long time ago. I'll have to rent it this weekend!

Sorry to read about your Tinking - been there, done that; and I'm sure I'll do it again at some point.

Looking forward to seeing Secret Life of Bees as I enjoyed the book and it's good to hear your good comment about it.

Oh no! I hope all that tinking went OK and you aren't too crazy at the end of it.
