Okay, now I am just MAD! I had the worst knitting day ever! (If you don't like the excessive use of exclamation points, run for your life right now!)

First off, I woke up with a headache. Not good. Then I decided to cast on for the mystery stole today. Yeah well, the needles I thought were 4's were really 5's, which resulted in a really sloppy looking inch or so. RIP IT! If that wasn't bad enough, I was looking for different needles to use, and do you think I can find one suitable circular needle? HECK NO! Well I am just ticked now. I look at my size 2 and 3 Addi's, and I am convinced they are the SAME SIZE!!! Now what? One says 2 and the other says 3 and according to my needle sizers, they are the same! Well you can bet I will be taking them to the LYS tomorrow to see what they have to say about it. Rant over? I don't think so....yeah, it gets worse!

Next on the rant Jaywalkers. I decided to use my new STR in Highway 30 to make a pair of Jaywalkers. I saw them on a blog and they were gorgeous. So I started some. ICK!!!!!! MAJOR POOLING!!!!!!!!! I HATE POOLING!!!!!! Waaah....the other blogger's pair didn't pool in that yarn. Not fair! (Yes I know I sound like I am 3 yrs old right now.) Rats. Start over. So I pick up a mystery color of CTH and start over with that. 2 rows in and there is a break in the yarn (except for one little strand). Oh my goodness! I am ready to and hoo and one more hoo. Now I'm going to have to rip again. (And you simply don't know how much I hate casting on and knitting that first row on a sock!) Want to come to my pity party? Haha, I forgot, you are already here. Sorry to have forced you to attend.

Sniff....I'll get over it. Pass me a tissue.

Come back tomorrow for better news. Really.

Oh, dear.
Have a nice cup of tea on me and cast on gently today.

PS - I had to do the same with a sock I'm designing yesterday - restarted 3 times to get exactly what I wanted.
