Grumpy


It’s grey and overcast but that’s not so bad… the issue is not having that 2nd and 3rd pair of hands or a backup brain that can do better math!

I love this design I’m working on but it’s been giving me grief since conception. It’s not unusual for me to have to abandon an idea simply because it doesn’t translate well to knit or crochet. It’s not unusual to have to really work hard at finding stitches and patterns to bring a concept to life, to have to reign in my ADD or to have to squirrel about finding the right tools and yarn to test knit. What is rare is when it all happens in one design AND when I’m suffering from the dithery-ness of Spring Fever! It’s very usual to have overused double negatives for em-pha-sis :). It may be time to start saving up for a charting software and a schematics software, if there is such a thing. Graphing by hand – each, and, every, square – is hell! Especially if a version doesn’t work or needs mods…

“Skully” and me are not speaking today. I am treating my brain to the feel of Tosh Sock gliding through my fingers and someone else’ pattern writing skills!
