Roxie asks a good question. What if I send in something to the knitting guild that is not my best work? Two possibilities--it passes anyway or I have to redo it. I've actually been thinking about this for awhile. I want to get on with my life and knitting and I am tired of having this thing hanging over my head. I really want the certificate so I'm going to finish because it's important to me.
I am pulling out and redoing a duplicate stitch swatch because I see a couple of small problems with my duplicate stitches looking like they are twisted. So. If I sent it in anyway, it MIGHT pass. I found a couple of stitches in my intarsia swatch where my yarn split and I decided I'm not going to redo it because it doesn't affect my intarsia pattern at all. But the swatch that requires me to do all kinds of decrease stitches with yarn overs is confusing and I think I messed up a couple of decreases, so I'm going to look it over and probably rework it. The entrelac is going as is. If I have to redo it later, so be it. I'm sick of it for now.
I remember that in doing the research for the history of knitting report in level 2, I researched off and on for A YEAR! Admittedly, I was also moving and teaching, but eventually I had to laugh at myself. Enough already. This is a TWO PAGE REPORT!
In other late breaking news, our heater seems to be broken again. It is blowing cold air out the vents even though the whole thing is turned off. This is the same problem we had in November. One may think that not having a heater in Los Angeles is no big deal. But our nights do get cold and I for one do not enjoy sitting around in a house where the temperature is 52 degrees. It is not sunny this morning. All I see out our kitchen window are very slow cars on the 10 Fwy and gray sky.
