I was feeling pretty good the other night as I was knitting the last row of the thumb stitches before I take them off and go back to just knitting the hand. I was getting closer to the finish line and then I could just be done and YAY...
I took off the thumb stitches and then it hit me. Like a tonne of *BLEEP*ing bricks. I have somehow done it again. I don't even know how I did it. I KNIT TWO BLOODY RIGHT HANDS.
This has happened before. WHICH IS WHY I THOUGHT I WAS BEING CAREFUL. But... apparently not. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME BRAIN!? I put my knitting down and away. I keep telling myself just spend an hour ripping back to before the thumb and then picking it up and beginning again. But my brain says "NO". And I haven't gone back. At least I haven't gone back yet. I have a hard deadline for these now. I have to go back, even though EVERY FIBER OF MY BEING SAYS "NOPE".
On the bright side, at least I didn't get all the way to the end of these before realizing the problem. But still... *sigh*
Speaking of brighter sides.... I am now the mother of a PRESCHOOL GRADUATE. I'm not entirely sure how the time whizzed by so quickly- but instead of wallowing in my great anguish... celebrate with me the fact that MY KID did it (WITH A SPEAKING PART IN THE CONCERT!)!
So- that's where we're at today... hoping the weekend starts to look a little more positive for the mitten.
EDITED TO ADD- I just realized that the GIF I used to express NOPE had a big ole "F word" in it- I didn't notice it when I previewed it for my blog. I AM SO SORRY... I try to keep this PG... my bad.
