Oh Fudge

So last week the red cardigan went into time out, because I've made the sleeve too long and I won't have enough yarn left if I continue. i knew this really as I started the cap shaping, but waiting until I was 2 inches in before admitting it. So now I have to rip back a good 4 inches. Of lace and shaping. Oh fudge.

Working on my second monkey sock, heel done beautifully, ready to start the patterning along the top of the foot. I've made the heel in the wrong spot for the pattern to match properly to the first one. Must rip out said beautiful heel. Oh fudge.

I'm going to work on some stockinette now.

I'd put the offending knits in time out; pour myself a cool beverage; sit near the ocean; and just veg out!

Right there with you, friend. 15 rows of print o' the wave, not to mention the whole-foot-worth of sock - that still smarts.

I have fixed the sock, but lack the energy to concentrate on the lace cardi.
But your whole re-knitting a sock saga has me beat!
