I had a serious letdown on the bonnet this week. The diamond motif (in between flowers) wasn't looking right to me and then I made the horrible realization that I repeated the pattern every 16 stitches like the diagram appeared without noticing the little note underneath that said to repeat the 14 middle stitches. ACK!!!
I am not good at fixing mistakes... what if I can't get those stitches all back on correctly??! Plus, it is really disheartening to undo all those rows I so excitedly knit this week. It makes me sick to think about it. I was so proud! But, if I continue on as I have been and ignore the problem, well, when it is finished I bet that weird non-diamond will bug me to no end.
Not sure if I have it in me to rip it out yet.
I'm still chugging along on the book Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child by Anthony Esolen. It isn't that it isn't a great (and captivating) read...it just seems I am too tired to pick it up by bedtime. I have to chug a little faster... it is due back to the library May 4th with no more renewals allowed. That should do some motivating...
