All ‘play’ and no ‘work’ makes Gram a very fast knitter. Then comes the reality.
A little bitty mistake twenty-two rows back absolutely had to be fixed. No hiding, no excuses, no tears, just yank it off the needle and unravel it! The photo tells no secrets. I was following a chart – one that I had designed myself. The charted design is still there . . . somewhere in the tangled part. If you look closely, you might see it.
Cruising along at over 2000 stitches per hour is the ‘play’ part (not extraordinarily fast, but consistent hyper-knitting). As you can tell by the photo below, the ‘work’ part is having to back up a bit and take a second crack at the stitches.
All you clever readers will notice that the yarn is blue and white and will probably be guessing that the shredded project must be going to Indianapolis: something footballish/something Super Bowlish. You would be right. It will still get there, but I need a cup of coffee and a walk around the block before I have the fun of doing those twenty-two rows over.
Keeps me humble . . . . and I have plenty of those opportunities!
