Things that make you go, "Arrrgh!"
* Finding $12.50 a skein alpaca scattered througout the house and a very happy looking cat snoozing in the knitting chair.

* Needing 6 more inches of yarn than are left on the skein to finish casting off, and

top on my list of things that make you go, "Arrrgh!" at the moment is

* confidently ripping the empty DPN out of my left hand only to realize it wasn't empty and I now have 16 size 0 stitches to pick up.... TWICE IN FIVE MINUTES

*Finding my friends scarf all hairy and scattered around the house, covered in hair and anything else that was on the kitchen floor.

*Finding myself covered in yarn and needles in the middle of the night from out cats.

*Having only 1 16in circular, where all the other patterns call for size 7 or 8.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Buying needles in 3 different sizes before trying them out and finding that you hate them and now you can't start your socks and you can't return the needles

Realizing you bought more pattern books and don't need more pattern books and really should not be spending money on more pattern books
WIP: GAAA for m&d, purse for grandma (needs assembly), Grannie Smith Cardi (still), 3 quilts, maybe five

In the Wings: felted clogs, socks

Recent FO: dishcloth for swap, booties for cousins babe

*having your son bring you a knot of a mess and asking you what he did wrong. Not to fix it but to explain how he made it.

*falling asleep knitting intarsia to wake up and realize that you did 3 inches all in one color

*trying to make sense of intarsia patterns when you have the flu

*settling on a project because you don't have the right yarn or pattern for what you really want to do but you don't know what you really want to do anyway and nothing is inspiring you at the moment.

Having my 10 year old son beg and make a scene in the LYS for me to buy him some yarn to make some project. Then two days later the yarn and stuff is sitting in a bag in his closet untounded. GGRRRR......

Ordering yarn on-line for an afghan project thinking I have the correct amount needed, then going back and re-reading the pattern just to find out that it states the # of grams, not # of yards needed.

Now to see if I can go back and order more yarn in the same dye lot...

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

On the needles: Not much
Finshed: Nothing lately

Nope, still can't wrap my head around that idea...
