And, it has been another rainy day. Every time I even thought about going for a walk or heading to the garage for some desperately needed organizing, the rain started again in downpour soaking fashion. So, of course, I avoided the same much needed organizing in the house.
After all, if I am going to be willfully blind to chaos, it should be all inclusive, right?
Instead I finished the Capricorn, which is the last of this year’s Tiny Modernist’s Zodiac SAL. I will feel like it was more of an accomplishment if I wasn’t starting at a few thousand more stitches to complete the frame.
I then bit the bullet and took out a whole section of another piece. This is the one where I had forgotten to mark off the overlap on PatternKeeper and had completed about 350 stitches in over three columns and in three rows from where they should have been. That might not make sense to you, but trust me, it is not a mistake I am going to make again.
But then, looking at it, I realized that I had made exactly that mistake when moving down from the previous row. Not horizontally for whatever reason, just vertically, there are three rows repeated from the first row to the second. Ripping out 2500+ stitches? Not likely…so I will have to see, with the next section, if complete fudging is possible..
Since I was already in a bad mood, I picked out a misshaped tree from Section 2 (out of 19) in Owl Forest’s Alice through the Looking Glass SAL. But the whole bottom half is now complete
Perhaps the only comforting thought I can offer myself is that each piece looked better with the mistakes out.
It was at this point that we were invaded.
I am not sure what the girls thought they were going to find, but where there are people, there must be food. Right?
