How do you know if it is Election day in Texas?

Easy! Every two minutes you have people calling from the candidates or their supporters requesting your vote! And making sure you will caucus. Texas has both primary and caucus voting...so I get to vote twice. Now the other candidates for other offices are calling!!! Don't they know I have stuff to do?

Subject change: Don't try doing more than two things at a time with a huge cup of fresh hot coco! The resulting scream hurts DH's ears, the dog steals your scone, and the resulting red burn marks on you thumb, belly and thighs from the spill makes one very unhappy (dog not fazed as he liked my scone)! Nooooo, I was not trying to knit at the same time...yarn was safe.

I think I might be better served by giving up the knitting for the day and watch my EZ Glossary until it runs out or it is time to go caucus, come home and watch the results.

'Nah...so I keep goofing up...one learns from mistakes and mishaps. Right?

Learning curve?

OOOOOOKKKKK, no one has answered me...probably knitting fast...I went searching other places and people...EZ says the pass 2 over is fine...or you can slip one, k 2 tog, pass s1 over resulting stitch..

And then I lost my stitch...used marker on line and not pin on stitch.

Yack, ripit, ripit, ripit...will I ever get this right...will I ever get this right??? EZ said to do the baby sweater first and think of it like a swatch. This has got to be the biggest swatch I've ever made!

BTW, is there any reason why you can't or shouldn't do the way I questioned?

Probably not. But you are doing EZ's pattern. Try both of her ways (that will make you crazy enough) before branching out on your own or this sweater could take you longer than it has taken me so far! (And the men in white coats are close to me now!)

Think: trying both, you have to knit and frog it at least once or twice to figure out which way you like best.

I am so tired of froggiing! I will leave it more experienced/faster knitters to try my questioned way and let me know the answer!

A fellow knitter said I might be a bit anal (shut up DH).

I picked one. Now have to decide to go back to the cast on or knit it off back to my last mistake.


Did you say you can hear me from there? sorry.
