We usually go out to see a real movie in a real theater on New Year's Day. This year, we were afflicted with a sever case of stay-at-home-itis. Instead, we held a private screening of "Field of Dreams" for the kids (who had never seen it), which accounts for my baseball metaphor.
Strike one. I had the clever idea to knit 8 white stripes to represent the year, '08, on the Special Olympics Scarf.
The scarves are for the '09 Winter Olympiad.
Strike two. The specifications for the scarf recommend a width of 4.5 inches.
Neither of these might have induced me to frog. No one but me would have to know I screwed up the year. In some universe 7 inches might be close to "about 4 1/2." Even still I doubt the Special Olympics Committee would have rejected the scarf. Then I came up against Strike Three.
I like it better thinner.
It's no use trying to berate me or threatening to beat me with a crowbar. It's already too late. This one is out.
