The musings of an obsessive knitter and stash collector

Pride going before a fall?

I was doing so well at the weekend, knitting up a storm and doing housework, I really should have known better!
Sunday evening I dropped a stitch or two on the scarf in Wendy Cosmic - it's only garter stitch with a yarn round the needle twice every other row, but being fluffy I can't pick the rotten thing up right, I've frogged what seems like half a ball of yarn and it still isn't right, so I've abandoned it until next time I'm at home in daylight.
Monday night I got home and found that the freezer door hadn't closed properly on Sunday and had defrosted the fridge and the freezer and tripped out the motor so I spent an entertaining evening throwing away the food I'd planned on living on during December owing to a slight overspend on wool!
Tuesday my journey home from work was enlivened by pupils at a local school who decided to throw what looked like half a brick at my bus shattering one window.
I dread to think what this evening will bring!
On the knitting front the shrug is growing slowly, I cast on a new sock in a red/blue mix called red china and have reached the foot in my favourite cuff down pattern, I have done a small amount more of the old brown/cream sock but I may never reach the end of it - I'm trying not to think about it too much! I do have 2 complteed pairs and I love them dearly, I'm determined to have enough pairs by the end of the winter to wear hand knit socks every day of the week! I just may have to declare that winter lasts until July to achieve this ambition.
