And the knitting goes on


Even when one excitedly starts in on Chart 2 (at last!) only to discover that the pattern was not read with sufficient care so as to allow one to notice that between Chart 1 (all five lengthy repetitions) and Chart 2, contrary to all expectations of the stockinette and yarn-over exhausted knitter, there exists a rather crucial partial repeat of Chart 1…
So I consoled myself with some berry snacking


and the second viewing of the night of My Neighbor Totoro (this time in French just to make things more interesting),


as I tinked my way back, started those skipped rows of the partial repeat, and studiously ignored the melted puddle of wax that was the fluttering hope of wearing Icarus next weekend.

Oh man!

Well think positively! There's still a chance that you could have it done.

Oh, so sorry about Icarus (but props to you for the mythology reference!). I hope it goes quickly from here.

Those seem good consolatory tactics. Was there less screaming in French? :)
