Mirror, mirror, on the wall...

Whose the stubbornest of them all?

Ahem.

Stubborn?

Moi?

Bite me.

But I will not be beat. Even if it takes me until Scrunch graduates with her doctorate, I will finish this damned lace if it kills me. And if it kills me Jess, you can have it. I would have loved to take pictures of it, but I've frogged it three times. For you non-knitters, frog it means to rip-it, rip-it, RIP-IT OUT! Just about the most frustrating thing on the planet. I am now resorting to writing out each and every line of the chart on a 3x5 card so I can flip through them. I'm also using markers between every repeat.

This lace is hard for me, but I can do hard things. 'I think I can'. 'I think I can'. 'I think I can.' I think I want 'I think I can' tattooed somewhere.


Mine is a seafoam green with greenish turquoise beads. Well, someday it will be.

Are you using a life line like some of the girls at knitting night talked about?

I love the shawl. I picked up a really neat row counter in Ventura that works great. It is a clicker kind. I can pick you up one if you want. Are you putting the beads on?

Yes and yes.

Lifeline after every chart. And it's just not the same without the beads.

Thanks, but I've got a katcha-katcha. I couldn't knit without it.

I still want one...even if you don't die
