Today, Just a little talk, or more likely rambling

A long time ago, many, many years now, a friend passed away. In her leaving she left a lot of yarn, some partially finished projects and some finished. In those finished projects were such as these. These are decorative potholders. These are not the kind that you use in the kitchen around a hot stove. They would not hold up for that. My friend made them for decoration. To hang on the wall or to use as pass the hot bowl at the table.

It took me a few hours to figure this one out but figure it out I did. I made so many of them, in so many different colors. I added little table dollies to sets as presents and tiny little coasters. I really loved doing these, but haven't done any for years now. These are some that I still have hanging around. They are a double thickness made all in one row. It's pretty neat.

I picked up my criss cross waffle afghan again tonight to work on it. Bummer first row a mistake again. I just couldn't believe it. I am not tired, well not like I was. I had a lazy morning and a little time at work that amounted to not a lot of stress or reason to make the mistake I saw.

Ah then it dawned on me, I didn't make a mistake in wrapping that row. That row was perfect, but the row before had a dropped stitch. There is was plain as day, and I had been missing it. I am so lucky that the stitch was just sitting there, right where it had fallen several nights ago. I just unwrapped the row and picked that little stitch up to place him right back where she belonged (have to vary that he and she, I didn't ask so don't want to insult, ROFLO). Anyway it is back in place and I am rows beyond that little fiasco. All that frogging "my mistakes" and it wasn't even the right mistake I was trying to fix. Ugh! Yuck! Yell! Scream! Now I feel better.
