and here am i facing tomorrow alone in my sorrow

You know those times when nothing you say or do comes out the way you want it to and you just want to crawl into a hole and hide and have nobody talk to you only you can't because you aren't alone and people expect you to be happy and cheerful and emotionless?

tell me why tell me why is it hard to make arrangements with yourself when you're old enough to repay but young enough to sell

Someone tell me why I'm making a 2x2 ribbed hat on size 00 needles with 188 stitches using Windy Hill Luxury Blend or whatever it's called (qiviut, merino and silk) using magic loop.

No, really. Please. Someone. Explain. Because I want to know. Why am I doing this?

what it is i'm always thinkin' 'bout i'll have the usual

Why is it so hard to find a pattern for a standard, stockinette with ribbed edging, approximately 44" bust cardigan with a gauge of 18/4"? I've spent days knitting and frogging and knitting and frogging and knitting and frogging. Crazy Lady picked out some Brooks Farms Riata at Rhinebeck and wants a cardigan with pockets. I made the pockets as gauge swatches. I'm now on the sleeves. Over and over again. (insert picture here. I'd put one up but Crazy Lady is currently using my Flickr account and I can't remember how to access my .Mac account and I have a migraine right now.)

Anyway. My solution? A ribbed, cardiganized version of the Ella Rae T-Shirt Sweater. Here's hoping it works.
