I wanted to Cry

Saturday, January 04, 2014

I was getting ready to work on the dusty roses afghan after I took a picture & posted here & as I picked it up the cat got her claws caught in it & now I have to take the whole thing apart. It is knit on a loom board & I do not know any other way to fix it. Little snags I can just pull the rows around it to fix but this was a big long snag. I had 147 rows out of 320 rows done. I have 3 color sections taken out. I am going to write a journal about my work on taking it apart & then restarting & finishing the afghan. I did get the picture on here at least. I also did some reading on my Tablet & computer game playing. I also put pictures of Slinky ( the cat who got caught in the afghan), Harley the male cat, & the 2 dogs Buster & Bristol & a shot of where I am at working on the baby quilt that I am embroidering.

I am having a 9th bad sinus migraine day & night.

    Hugs. I've had things like that happen to me with my cross stitch. Either something got spilled or i missed a stitch in the beginning but didn't notice it till I was quite a ways into the project and then had to either pull almost everything out, or just completely start over.

I also can sympathize with the headaches. Get some rest and feel better soon.

    Oh, no! I would have cried, too. I don't know of an easier way either.

    Kitty would have one paw in the pound if that was me! I totally understand how frustrated you are.

However, I can tell you from experience to let it wait until you're feeling better. I've been trying to knit a shawl with a very simple seven-stitch repeat. I was sick as a dog all December, and I couldn't keep the seven-stitch count right for anything.

    So sorry I know what you are going thru on a smaller basis. I made a shawl and had to take it all apart

    I'm so sorry to hear about all that work having to be taken out. :( We know they don't mean to do things like that. If it's any consulation I was knitting a sweater once and my dog got caught up in the yarn and pulled out several rows of hard work right off the needle that I had to re-do. So it happens to many. I know that doesn't help you though. You will do fine getting it back on.

I hope you feel better soon. HUGS!

    Oh no, how heartbreaking. Perhaps google to see if there are any fix suggestions/ideas - hopefully there is some solution emoticon emoticon
