If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure. (Anonymous)
I'm still working on my Pettine shawlette. Every time I think I'm almost finished, I find another mistake and I have to tink (knit it back a few rows) or actually frog (rip-it, rip-it) quite a bit. It's getting so bad, I've been told that I should re-name this my "Now what have I done" shawl. But I am determined to finish this. Surprisingly, I still love the pattern and the project.
At Knit Night, Pam brought in packets of M&Ms for all of us. When we opened them up, they had knitting phrases printed on them. "Knit & Purl," "Incr - M1," "K2tog - SSK," and of course "Chix with Stix." I was impressed. I think Pam deserves some sort of an award for this idea.
