Totally ripped out near-to-every stitch knitted in said 4 hours when I got home, and promptly achieved more knitting that night in an hour of watching TV. Oh dear!
It's not an unfamiliar lament within our group and others like it, and I know it is for the lovely and wonderful company that I go to our meetings, of course. I usually take plain, plain, PLAIN knitting wherever possible, but I did have a smug thought that I could totally knit (simple) texture and (simple) lace whilst talking and laughing and eating.
and I can still see that difference in the band skein on my Grace...but I'm far more cool with it, even from last week.
Anyway, both projects are humming away now, and although I am still coveting new and exciting patterns via Ravelry trawling, I am somewhat more content with the ones in progress now they are showing just that: progress.
I've decided I'm going to cast on the Neon Ski Bonnet in my recently-acquired Cascade 220 "Summer Sky Heathers", once both current projects are to the armpits, though. A girl can't live on knitting monogamy alone for ever!
