SOTSii - Clue 4

I finally finished clue 4 of Secret of the Stole II. About halfway through the 4th row from the completion of this clue I laid the stole down while I went downstairs to grab a snack. Today I've been watching the CSI Marathon on Spike while I convalesce. As a rule, I never stop mid-row, I always complete it before laying it down. Call it sickness, fever..........I'll call it getting cocky. When I picked it up I forgot I hadn't finished the row and began trying to get the needles in line for the next row. To my gasping dismay I realized I had pulled about half the stitches off the needles.



Being the calm, cool, debonair individual that I am. Actually, I am only calm and cool when the situation is very, very bad. Cool as a cucumber. But, that don't last long. Anyways, I calmly and slowly picked up the dropped stitches and low and behold, it all turned out okay. Whew!!!!!!!

So many similarities! I too have the "lergy"(trying to carry on with my shifts), a husband who gets up every night, and attempt too many knitting projects. You have inspired me to join the summer one as well. I am sure we are not the only mad people!By the way knitted monkee coming along well.

That terrifies me to this day! I can tink all day long, but pulling the needles out by accident scares me to death!

Good work on the Stole!

Your stole looks really nice! I'm glad you were able to recover your dropped stitches, I always try and finish my row too before I put my work down, even when the kettle is whistling and the cat is going nuts!

Your lace adventure almost stopped my heart! To imagine all those stitches and the work to pick them up and sort them out, plus you are not feeling well to boot. I think you deserve a lace knitting award!

Lucky, lucky, very lucky you. Must be some sort of knitting guardian after all the compliments and encouragement you give others.

Looking good!
