I am in a good mood today despite it being the 3rd consecutive day of pouring rain (with no hope of anything different in the long term forecast ). And it's not JUST because the Canucks are off to the Stanley Cup.
I am singing a happy tune today because, despite hardly doing any work on my "Ode to Hedwig" sweater, I am up an entire sleeve over last week.
When I sat down to start the "2nd" sleeve, I noticed something strange about the pattern. Something had changed, there were less pictures and the instructions were in a different order. WTF? Was all could think in my black mood. Then I realized that the Owls pattern had been updated earlier this year and because I had purchased a copy I was sent the update. Somehow, I had picked up a copy of the old version and was knitting off of that.
MY FIRST SLEEVE WAS CORRECT!!!!
And the best part is... I hadn't frogged it yet (Phew!!!)
Oddly through, despite realizing that I hadn't made a mistake, I felt a bit like the stuffing had gone out of me over the whole process. And even through just last week, I showed you my plans for what to knit next, to coin a phrase from the Yarn Harlot "I accidently slipped and fell, and when I came up, I had started" ... a Noro Striped Scarf!
I will give you just a little sneak peak because I actually have hopes of having it done for Friday.
