Harumi has been on a time out for a couple of weeks. I made all the way to page four of the pattern and came to the following instruction:
and I could not work out what to do next. I mean, WTF?! I was stumped but good. Furthermore, I had no idea how I was supposed to incorporate the new stitches into the lace pattern (or the garter column). So, I shoved Harumi to the bottom of my knitting basket and caught the spinning bug. I finished my spinning project in progress and ordered more fiber.
I knitted a dishcloth. Then I knitted another one. Finally, I was ready, so I hauled out the instructions and found this on page 3:
It really does help if you read the instructions, you know.
This is how far I’d gotten without working the lace pattern into the increase stitches.
So I put in a life line.
And frogged the shit out of it.
I tell you, if I did not enjoy knitting… Well, let’s just say that it’s a good think I like knitting.

And you learned something new! Always makes the bumps in the road a little more bearable. :-)
Frogging the shit out of anything is just no fun. Thank god for lifelines! Onward, right?
It looked lovely… can’t wait to see it when you are done!
Sounds like something I’d do. I’ve always had a problem reading *all* the instructions. Drives my Mom (who’s also a teacher) freakin’ nuts. lol
I think “frogged the shit out of it” is my new go-to expression. Hope you are well. I just got my head out of my butt and back into the blogosphere.
