argh

OK, I'm really frustrated. Or, at least, I was. Now that I've cast on a new *fun* project for myself, eaten home made pasta (by my awesome roommate) and had a beer and a glass of wine, I'm a bit more relaxed. But I worked the whole afternoon at sit n' knit at my LYS on a sample for the store and in the end neither I nor Sue (the owner) liked it. The yarn I was using just wasn't right for the pattern. Afterwards I picked up a skein of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Charcoal mix and wound it with Crystal Palace Kid Merino in self-striping pink to make myself the leg warmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts:



Oh, and then I found out that my peanut butter might be killing me...

I love the charcoal and pink combo. I know the feeling of frustrated knitting. The other day I was having a frustrated knitting day and I thought I knit 2 right sides of the vest. Well, I read the pattern wrong and had ripped out a perfectly good portion of knitting! Oh, well.

Ah! That's awful. That would probably be the point at which I would put down that project and leave it alone for a long, long time.

Who knew Peter Pan could kill you? Sorry your sample didn't work out the way that you wanted to, but I love the combination you're using for the leg warmers ....
