Setting off on TTL mini-marathon sounded like a wonderful idea, as Que Sera and Hamamelis have been patiently waiting their turn in the queue. With the hope of smooth roads ahead, I picked up where I'd left off, but (and this is a big but) without carefully rereading or paying attention to the pattern. You'd think I'd learn, but apparently, I'm a slow to understand.
There were little whispers, the niggling little voices, telling me something might be wrong. However, I knit on and on, happily in my stupor, mindlessly making progress. (ha!) Then realization hit and it was if I'd been shaken from a dream...Que Sera was wrong, all wrong. Major damage had been done; a big mistake, one that could not be ignored, made it necessary to frog six inches of knitting. One can not change Double Moss stitch into Seed stitch and be happy. Good knitting just doesn't work that way.
Instead of letting the error be, or allowing it to do me in, I rewound the yarn and, with redoubled effort, started again (heavy sigh), this time paying careful attention to the written pattern.
And so the process goes. Cotton Fleece has held up well to my shenanigans. The (reknit) fabric is as good as new and I'm rather excited about wearing Que Sera…down the road...when she's finished...you know? This may not be a quickie knit, but I'm staying focused and I will be a better, more conscientious, knitter from here on out.
