I have been know to have a short fuse at times, my temper has sometimes got the better of me but usually I have just cause for these outbursts. Such as the time I was backing out of my drive and some woman came flying around the corner at such a high speed that she nearly collected me and then yelled out the car window and called me all the swear words she could think of. Or the time that I caught some woman fossicking in my garage and then she had the nerve to ask me if I wanted to sell her the childs swing she found in there!! However on the weekend an incident happened at our knitting covens stall that would have pushed the most placid persons buttons. As I turned up late and missed the whole thing, I will direct you to Suzi's eye witness account of what happened. I kind of wish that I had been there earlier, but then again maybe not!!
The 60's Cabled Jumper is nearing completion, front, back and sleeves are done and dusted only the collar to go. There is 179 stitches and 50 rows of rib for the collar so that should keep me busy for a while. I did have a tension (guage) problem with the sleeves. After the increases the pattern said work straight until work measures 17 inches, well the sleeve already measured 17 1/2 inches. Yet the stitch tension of 8 1/2 stitches over 2 inches was spot on, weird!!
I am also taking part in a dishcloth swap, so if anyone is interested you can find all the details here. Should be a lot of fun, I just have to find some decent cotton to knit them in.
