I like to believe that everything happens for a good reason...that is, good things and not so good things...they all seem to have a way of working out...wouldn't you agree? Like this gorgeous yarn that was delivered by my friendly postman yesterday...they happened to have it when I wanted it and in the exact colorway...see,it was meant to be...now, that being said,last Friday...the 13th (you're not superstitious are you?) I picked up my needles to work on this...when the yarn ripped,just ripped...in half, at the end of a row,with only a mm to spare...I knew I would have to unknit a row ,blah,blah,blah...but the I thought...I really had wished I started it on larger needles,like the pattern called for ,wished it was lighter,airier...so I frogged it...and knit like a mad woman most of the weekend to compensate for what I had lost...I got this: just what I was looking for...it was really a rush to see it work just the way I wanted it to...you've had that feeling,too right? And I continued on until this...a flare up of tendonitis...tennis elbow...so for now,I'll wear my brace,take my Motrin and rest it...a little..but can anyone give me a good reason for this happening?
