Oh, just shoot me.

Okay, so lifelines and stitch counters won't always save you and sometimes you have to spend the day getting brave enough to let the stitch you dropped ladder down and then hook it back up. And (truly scary) isolate the stitch you added and drop that one on purpose (see my eye twitch?). I managed to do this between one set of stitch markers, so the stitch count stayed the same. Not only that, I did it in the row directly above the lifeline so the dropped stitch didn't ladder down. I know, I know. These things happen. But when your Scribble scarf has reached 2 and 1/2 feet, there is no way on God's green earth that you are going to rip back.

It also means you don't get to your knitting blog, even though you promised yourself when you started that you would absolutely, positively, no excuses accepted, commit to posting at least three times a week/every other day. Oh well.

So, no knitting progress, unless you want to count lessons learned (that's a euphemism for finding mistakes).

But I found something I thought was fun.

You Are Bert

Extremely serious and a little eccentric, people find you lovable - even if you don't love them!

You are usually feeling: Logical - you rarely let your emotions rule you

You are famous for: Being smart, a total neat freak, and maybe just a little evil

How you life your life: With passion, even if your odd passions (like bottle caps and pigeons) are baffling to others

I almost posted this yesterday. Then decided it was too goofy (and I didn't want to admit I do this kind of thing). See how the mighty are fallen.
Lovable neat freak. Ha!
But then there's that bit about collecting odd things. Yarn... Pointed sticks... The perfect knitting bag...

Scribble scarf? Is this feathers and fans? I want a picture!

I don't think blogs should have rules. But then you're Bert. I'm not logical although I guess I do collect (way too many) bits of yarn and pointy sticks (as I am faced with selling my yarn dresser to make room for all the other dressers we seem to have accumulated). I might have to put yarn in coat sleeves.
