the future unraveling stitch
Yes today, through all of my housework and parental obligations I am going to practice my rib stitch. A rib stitch is one that creates a “ribbed” design in your work; two knit stitches and two purl stitches; that’s how it’s supposed to go. But in my case it will probably go 5 knit 3 purl 18 knit, 1 purl….unravel, laundry, vacuum, clean the bathroom, aspirin, start the whole thing over. But that’s okay.
In the end my scarf should look like something you would find at fine retailers like Wal Mart, Rite Aid or Goodwill. No matter, a good documentary, some nice lighting and I should be level-minded enough to work through my frustration.
I did notice a documentary on Netflix about the earthquake in Japan not too long ago, “Megaquake: Hour that shook Japan” but every time I watch a show about earthquakes, I tend to imagine that I’m feeling one at any given moment. My husband gets sick of me asking, “Did you feel that?”
