My Liesle cardigan is on its third frogging back exercise! The first time I was tanked up on pain medication and totally knit the wrong size... I could've sworn I saw pigs flying that day!
The second time I reached the part when I divided for the arms and was merrily knitting away only to realise I had made a glaring error in the pattern. This is a pattern so simple that only involves one real pattern row and the remaining three are basically two knit rows followed by a purl row. Not exactly rocket science, but sometimes the simplest things can be the most challenging, you see it's all too easy to let your mind wander during the monotony and before you know it, BAM! your knitting is in a mess.
Just now as I was thinking yeah I've cracked it I looked back at the instructions and then at the garment and oh dear, where are the buttonholes?!!! It was a good job I'd been listening to this sermon:
So I smile and think, OK there's a lesson or two in here for me ... keep my mind on my work including God's will for me and to PERSEVERE AND GIVE THANKS IN ALL THINGS.
