So maybe I was a little too freaked out about my not perfect seams on the baby sweaters, maybe a little too OCD, (though I still think that perfection isn't a bad goal to strive for with handknitting). Apparently the recipient of said sweaters (well, the recipient's mother anyway) is very pleased by them and via email to the husbandly type critter, said: "BTW, the sweaters and booties are incredible! Screw school! Rain should start a baby boutique!!!" Which makes me feel good. And that is helpful because today is one of those days that is shaping up to be maybe not the hottest and so anything positive is a bonus, right?
Speaking of perfection in handknitting, I got through the twisted rib and half the first chart of the embossed leaf socks last night before I realized that there was a ginormous error in one of the leaves and had to frog and ended up frogging the whole thing (again) and that is when the ball of yarn hit the closet door and maybe there were some very bad words and some dpns flying across the room at a high velocity which in turn worried the cat a little bit which in turn caused the cat to knock over a bunch of stuff on the dresser as he exited the scene rapidly which in turn made a big mess and which, in the end, did not help my dour outlook overall.
Lesson learned: Do not attempt to do charted knitting at Scottish Country Dance class. Too distracting.
