Am I the only one...

G'day all!

Am I the only one who is knits along a lace pattern that you know off by heart cos you've done it enough to remember it, and then you look and realise that suddenly you decided to make up a new pattern?

Here's an example. The pattern says k2, sl1-k2tog-psso, k2, yo, ssk, yo, k1, yo, k2tog.

So why do I find myself doing this: k2, sl1, k2tog, yo, k2, yo....

It does rather ruin the pattern, and it is not as if I've done it once. Nope, about every three or four rows I find I am putting in a rogue yo and not doing a double decrease. Then on the next row I just look at it and wonder why oh why am I being a doofus?

When it works out, it looks pretty good:


Plus I've been holding out on you! Not only have I been rather busy trying to catch up on blogs and doing stuff at home and trying to keep DH going, but I've finished two largeish items in the last two weeks and I have not shared them! Then there's the one that I won't share until I've done the second one and the recipients have received them.

Worse, I have to do blog posts for each of them yet but I haven't fixed up the photos. DH did a photoshoot with me yesterday and I look rather radiant. Very radiant. I'm fair-skinned and in the sun I GLOW. LOL Most unCalifornian!

Here's a blogthing for you. I think I've done this one before but eh it is so long ago that I'll share with any new readers. I got it from Knitting Natty.



You Are An INFP



The Idealist



You are creative with a great imagination, living in your own inner world.

Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.

It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close.

But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.



In love, you tend to have high (and often unrealistic) standards.

You are very sensitive. You tend to have intense feelings.



At work, you need to do something that expresses your personal values.

You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.



How you see yourself: Unselfish, empathetic, and spiritual



When other people don't get you, they see you as: Unrealistic, naive, and weak



Gosh, don't I sound like a total tosser? I am not sure that I see myself as unselfish, empathetic and spiritual. Get me looking at etsy and suddenly I am greedy and want it all for myself!

  3. No, you are not. I was blithely doing the same today: Sl, K1 PSSO instead of S1 K2tog PSSO. It made for an interesting row with 219 stitches to undo. Love the lace pattern!!
