Definition of pain...or the need to bang head on least for me.

Exhibit A: The Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today sans one little border

Exhibit B: 12 " remaining of border to be knitted. The end is in sight!

Pain: Realizing you have just knit yards and yards of border onto the shawl WRONG side up!

Therapy: Understanding that patience, phooey and blecht, will be needed to frog this blasted thing back so I can do it properly.

Loading up the coffee pot now as it is going to be a long ribbit...

Pray for me.

Julie, it was a little early for wine at the time she posted. But maybe not now, he-he! --P

good luck with it. Always hard to deal with after spending all of that time. You are more restrained going for the coffee. I would be hitting the wine bottle.

So happy it is behaving better now. :)
As for the fear of stitches slipping off... do you have any of those little blue rubber tip protectors? They work really great to keep stitches on a needle, too. If you're not ready to take off the needle tip and put on a cap.

yup, it is stuck in my brain now. It is actually going better this time. I made a mistake and found that I only need two needles to do this instead of two for the border and one for the main body. Keeps things flowing much better. You know I couldn't do it without the needles from knitpicks. I took off the one end of the cable and attached the cap to secure the end of the shawl from sliding off. With just a plain circular needle, it would have constantly been in danger of coming out with as much fabric as there is currently on the cable. It is always a learning experience isn't it?

I agree with Susan. And you must be getting good at that border by now, right? --P
