I'm still plugging away on my Adventskalenderschal 2010. I am still very far behind. One reason: Clue #10. I have been working on Clue #10 for 2 days now. I believe I have tinked more rows than I have knit successfully for this clue. Infact, my merino is beginning to felt from all of the tinking! ARGH!
I should very much like to poke my own eyes out with my Addi Lace Needles should I have to tink any more rows in this clue. Of course, I will not. Primarily because Addi Lace Needles are German engineered precision knitting instruments and also because I sort of need my eyes.. Also, I keep hearing my grandmother say, "Patience is a virtue, my dear."
Even if my attitude is currently unsavory and I've not progressed in the least, I must point out that I've learned how to correct my knitting mistakes in this clue. I've learned how to tink back any number of stitch combinations. And trust me when I tell you that there are some hairy stitch combinations on the wrong side rows of this pattern.
So I look to this motto for the patience to continue this clue. (You can buy this little gem at the Ravelry store!)
