Why Is It...

...that Dalarna's second sleeve is working up slower than molasses in January?

Second Sleeve Syndrome.

OH NO!!!!!!!

I'm looking at the picture, and thinking, hey, there's a fold in the arm there Brigitte.

NO. I messed up!! (And I only just noticed this now as I'm posting...) Look at the first Charlie Brown repeat. Man...

*screams and swears into pillow*

*kitties scramble*

Do you think anyone will notice...?

Le Super Big Bummer.

OK. I'm ok now. At least the Central Park Hoodie is looking just fine. I'm on the second sleeve, which should be done by tomorrow night, I hope.

I'm going to have a drink now.

(PS - Hi Kathryn! Thanks for the compliments on the rug. I actually purchased it, and another one, on a trip to Morocco in 2002. Their rugs are unique (and not exported out of Morocco for sale) - this one was bought in a small village, and the design is completely random and made from what colours they had available.)

"Mom's not doing well right about now. I think she's swearing, but I really shouldn't repeat what she's saying... Something about *poopy* Second Sleeve Syndrome, my *butt*... Knitting! Dude, that's why I choose to sleep and eat and stuff."

Aww, poor kitty! Were you afraid?

Looks the same as the other to me but I trust that you know better! Why is it that we only notice mistakes after we've taken the picture and it's on the WWW for everyone to see? Can't count the number of times that has happened to me ;-)

Lorraine said...

Brigitte- Maybe I'm nuts (well, there's no "maybe" about it) but I don't see any mistakes.
Remember the galloping horse rule.

Chris said...

I don't see it, either. But it was good of Atticus to cover for you while you stomped around cussin' and stuff. ;)

Dipsy said...

Where? What? How? Where's a mistake??? I've spent quite a while looking at the pic of the sleeve, but couldn't for the life of me detect a mistake... hmmmm... I seem to be not the only one here, so it can just be a very tiny, unpimportant one - don't let yourself be dragged down by it, my friend - you know, as long as you have your lil' furry ones as assistants, nothing will go wrong! ;)

Carrie K said...

I don't see any mistakes either. Poor kitty. Subjected to that kind of language.

Tracey said...

Hmmm, I don't see it. It's funny because usually our mistakes are only visible to us and therefore drive us more nuts than the onlooker. Atticus, I don't want you to ever repeat what you heard Mom say, ok? Good kitty!

Lorraine said...

Marina- I am on very personal terms with Atticus, and let me tell you, besides thunder and lightning, that cat is afraid of NOTHING!

Brenda said...

I don't see the mistake! I just ripped out a whole bunch of a second sock yesterday when I realized I hadn't centered the cable on the top of the foot.

Thanks for stopping by Molecular Knitting and answering my questions.

Have a good weekend!

oh, what a pain. I just finished knitting the 1st sleeve on Liz for the second time. Great idea to start with new yarn. I frogged and reknit and man I hope it blocks out, or I'm knitting yet again!
I envy your snow.
I tagged you today.

Hehe sounds like a bunch of knitting tantrums that have occurred around here :) Frog quickly and swiftly - it's like bandaids - psychologically it hurts less ;)
