Chilly morning...

What does one do when one wakes up in the morning and realizes that it really did get down past freezing last night?  Seriously it's May and one must remember that in these parts mornings can get pretty chilly well up till the end of May.  The mountains even got snow the last two nights.  How long have I been living here?

On a morning such as today, one got up.  Cuddled on the couch with a warm blanket, turned on the favorite Saturday morning cooking shows and started back on the before mentioned cabley project.

A bit of a break was taken with this due to the fact that I had a most awful happening with it a few weeks ago.  During all my excitement of really getting the hang of all the wonderful cables I missed a most really important (as Brenna put it)  step in the directions.  Mind you that before I even cast on one little stitch I had read the directions thoroughly and highlighted this most really important step so that I would NOT forget it.  

Well, I forgot it.  And got to the point where I was an inch away from the bind off stage.  And realized I would have to rip everything out back to the most really important step area.  13 inches of cabley work.  I did shed a tear.  Everyone stayed clear of me for the rest of the evening even though I never growled at anyone over this.  Then I just got totally disgusted after ripping all off the work out and winding the yarn again that I just went to bed.

After some project diversion with some simple crochet things and other mindless pottering around, I am back to the cabley thing.  No mistakes this time.  So far.  And one more inch of cabley stuff and I will bind off at the end of the day.

But for now there are errands that must be completed.

Hope your weekend is turning out well!



  1. We're having lots of rain here and I can't even imagine snow in May. I love the color and I'll put my projects down if I run into trouble.

  2. Sorry about having to rip out that much work. That deserved a shed tear and I know I would have had to walk away for a minute too. But I'm glad to know that you were able to get back started and are almost done. It looks beautiful! :-)

  3. How is it that our hobbies can sometimes make us cry? :) Sorry you had to rip back so much knitting. But it will be worth it when you finish!! Happy weekend!

  4. Oh, I know that so good. When I forget that, I can´t stop knitting that length immediatelly again to forget that this happened :-)

  5. Yes, it was certainly chilly on Saturday wasnt it!?
    And we had 40 mph winds on top of it all too.
    But, thankfully I did not have to be out in it.
    I am SO sorry about the project.
    I had that.
    And it always seems like you have knitted along in perfect bliss for inch or tow before you realize it.
    Then the gut wrenching, cold sweat moment...
    I hope your day is spent enjoying the sunshine and no more tense knitting moments;)
