Argh!!!!! I am going insane with this one stupid pattern. Tried it on the #1 needles and that was nothing short of farcical. I am so disgusted with myself. I truly must be retarded. I am tired of feeling stupid.
So I just keep slogging on.
I started the original 217 stitch baby blanket. I think I have about 8 rows done on it. Went back to the black yarn and put it on #5 needles, hoping this might be a little easier. Fixed one mistake, which is vaguely hopeful. It's all about training my eye to find them and then developing skills to fix them. Which is why I am feeling like a real idiot.
So. I keep at it. Because I have to.
