Ostrich-like tendencies...

...are a bad thing. Especially when it comes to knitting. I had this niggly feeling that something Wasn't Quite Right. Did I stop and check? Get the tape measure (my super-dooper Lantern Moon bee tape measure even) out? No, I don't think I'll bother using it today. Did I compare the two pieces of knitting to see if they were the same length? Did I heck as. I'll just carry on knitting this front piece, with all the shaping and edging and everything because everything is going to be juuust fine. Not.

*sounds of gentle sobbing and unravelling of yarn in the background*

Still, it's not all bad.

I have been nominated for awards!

Many thanks to Hawksley for numerous things mentioned in this post. The bee tape measure and the Lasso yarn that I'm knitting (well, unknitting today)were swap gifts from her and for this, that arrived during my summer break. Hopefully it wasn't because I'd stopped posting.


I do like a bit of rock! I would nominate everyone in the list of blogs over there for one of these.



And thanks also go to Artyfartykat for a most unexpected nomination:


I would like to nominate Badger for one of these, as she has true comment power. And sent me a bribe present.

See the comment power in action! I haven't even told you yet ;)

Badger said...

I'm psychic. It's the only explanation.

Oh No poor you - frogging is one thing, but the re-knitting is when the real pain hits (for me anyway) so here is a {hug}

Fiona said...

Oh, no - that's rotten. I hope you have given it a damn good talking to.

Ta for the nomination! Or am I leaping to conclusions?

Kai said...

*hugs* I hate frogging, but if it must be done, it must be done.

Well deserved nominations!! :)

I feel your pain! I think the knitting gremlins are out in force as I currently have some knitting in a naughty corner awaiting some tinking. Congratulations on the awards, well deserved :)

Hooray for the awards!

You're not the only one who has knit doggedly on in the face of all reason! Hope the sorting out wasn't too painful.
