I was knitting happily along on my first cable sweater. That's when it happened. :crying: I saw a dropped stitch walking down my cable. I didn't know how to fix it so I decided to frog it back down to the ribbing (only about 2"). While frogging I knocked over my glass of water. Which hit my pattern, phone, desk, & floor. Everything survived except the pattern. Went to get a fresh copy off computer. I went to print it. Computer decides that the printer isn't mine, it is my mother's. We are all on a workgroup from my comuter. I have no idea how computer made this decision.
It decided it had to install her printer (really mine) which froze everything since it was trying to get the files off of her computer and they are not there because they are already here. Son unplugged computer and restarted it for me. Computer instantly froze again. Son unplugged and restarted it again. Finally it is working.
Moral of the story: Don't question any decision your computer makes! It makes it cranky and it knows how to make your life miserable (by limiting your access to your knitting patterns.
This whole mess has now taken me 1 1/2 hours to fix. I now realize that when I frogged the sweater I put the larger needles in it instead of the smaller that the sweater started with. So now I get to change the circular needles for the smaller set. I am glad I stopped to write this instead of knitting the sweater. Or maybe I should just go to bed and start fresh tomorrow. Maybe the computer will have forgotten who I am by that time.
