I realized yesterday morning that I had missed taking my antidepressant on Friday morning — whups! That might explain some of my irritability, or it might have just been coincidence. One thing I did note with some bemusement was that it was much easier to spit out words in that annoyed state than in a placid state, ha ha. I don’t feel like I’m missing anything, per se, but it’s easier to write when there’s something to complain about. *shakes cane metaphorically*
I also had some knitting drama this week. I’d gotten 50 rows up the back of cardigan #2 in the pattern y’all have already seen… and somehow, I’d gained a stitch somewhere. So I sighed, and picked back a row. There was still the extra stitch, so I started picking out the next row. That didn’t go very well, so I got annoyed enough to rip out a few rows in whole with the intent to pick up the stitches and carefully piece it back together. Except that didn’t work either — each stitch was running back four rows, and I just gave up and frogged it. Frogging, for those of y’all not in the knitting no, is to basically unwind the entire thing and start again. And I did. And I caught up to where I was before last night, so that’s exciting. I might actually finish this section in the next day or two!
I also noticed another little error that I cannot be assed to go back and correct. I’m not exactly sure what I did, but there’s a couple garter-y stitches amongst the knit. It doesn’t seem to be doing any real harm though, so it just gets to be one of those ‘Look, it’s handmade!’ artifacts. I almost did it again later, but I caught it after two or three stitches into the row and managed to easily correct it. And, of course, I’m counting even more obsessively than I was before, because I will go out of my mind if I have to re-redo this section! I’m most of the way done with it (as I was before), and I don’t want to end up resenting the poor piece, ESPECIALLY as I know I can do it. *chuckles*
Past that, I’m tired, and I think the weather is starting to catch up with me… which is ironic, ’cause it’s starting to turn back to being nicer. Maybe it’s a pollen-based assault? Beats me. This year has thus far been significantly less brutal in that regard, but then, we’ve only had ‘nice’ weather for the last couple of weeks especially. Ah well.
I hope that everyone is having a good weekend.
