Long day, short post.
After doing a days worth of not so creative stuff……..I grabbed my new hat on needles and thought I’d get some knitting time in before heeding the call of my pillow.
I knew I was close to the decreases on the crown of the hat, and quickly knit the last 1/4″ in the straight knitting.
And, right then, the pattern started in with a bit of direction that just sends me over the edge!
What sort of help is that? All the remaining decrease rows are called NEXT ROW!
I don’t understand. And, I’d love some numbers…………after all, I just broke down and bought myself a row counter, after what…………40 years?? Would it be so difficult to number the rows in patterns?
This next row business was all it took tonight. I put the hat down, to be finished tomorrow. I’m going to dig through my stash of sock yarn bits, and see if I can find one that isn’t self striping……….to make a pair of fingerless mitts for a client I met today.
The hat will look better in the morning!
