So the computer is slowly coming back to where I need it to be, but tragedy has struck elsewhere. Yep the knitting. The gremlins moved and are wrecking havoc on my projects!!
First, last night I'm knitting along on my sweater when I found yet ANOTHER error. This is 3 rows down and since its part of the flower, there are yos and k3togs and OMG-how-do-I-rip-back-to-fix-this?????? The only way I can do this is to rip back to where there is just knitting, 12 rows down. NO WAY because then I have to do all the lacy work all over again!! I'm not much of a ripper, I can live with mistakes. However this is a pretty big one (yos where there should be knitting which means holes where there shouldn't be) plus the leaves have yos that don't show up. I feel this sweater becoming a UFO and the yarn being used for another project. I may have to look thru my stash and maybe the internet to see if I have a pattern that can use this sport weight yarn. We'll see.......
The second tragedy is this.
A BIG HONKIN' HOLE IN BABY GIRL'S PONCHO!!!!!!!
I took a deep breath and calmly asked her what happened. She said it was because she didnt fold it up. Honestly when I looked at it, it looked like the yarn got ripped in two. Baby Girl can't do that yet so it either got caught in a drawer or those !@#$ gremlins got to it! Either case I took another breath and fixed it.
It's not the best fix in the world but I can see that it will be the first of many. Plus when she wears it, you cant see it because of the business of the yarn.
I pulled out the Eurofax to make my stole and it's a feather and fan pattern. Normally not a problem, but after the fiasco of yos and k2togs from the sweater, I'm afraid to start it. I may pull out the yarn for my sweater instead. I'm pretty sure that sweater is a basic sweater pattern, nothing fancy. And I think it's more of a jacket than a sweater. Gonna pull that out tomorrow. For now, I'm pulling out my sock. So far the gnomes or gremlins or any other x-rated "G" word have left it alone.
