I think I’ve forgotten how to knit lace. Actually, that’s not true. It’s not the knitting of it causing me a headache. I got started just fine, and it was going swimmingly!
Then last night after I got home from work I sat down to work on it some more. I had a stitch count problem on one needle, and there was an errant fly buzzing around, driving me mad. I put the knitting down and jumped up to find the flyspray, pulling out a needle in the process. (The bright green yarn is marking the start of the round. For yarn this fine I find locking stitch markers too heavy, and can’t use a stitch marker on the end of a DPN! I find this the easiest way.)
Frogged, begun again. Attempted to begin again, anyway. While I proudly got the circular cast on perfect the first time, it would not cooperate last night. Multiple attempts resulted in me throwing the yarn across the room. End result?
In Twinkie news, she’s doing okay. She’s over ten now, and I’m afraid it’s starting to show. She has a recurring eye infection that has her on constant antibiotics, and is pretty much totally blind now. She moves a lot slower than she used to, but she still knows exactly where the treats are kept, and the best way to get one from us. We gave her a spa day the other day.
