For all you knitting friends....

Insert big sigh of relief ---->here,      here<--- and     --->here......
 For fack sake!! I have no luck with my Denise needles... well.. I must have a little.. as I did not have to rip back my whole shawl!!! Ok... Here is what I am talking about....

I am knitting along on my Japanese Garden Shawl... minding my business... watching my pattern... knit knit knit... next thing I know there are stitches and stitch markers everywhere!!! My needle came undone!!! My gosh I thought the damn thing broke.... It didn't so I was able to finish the row...  I was also able to salvage my stitches... I hate trying to find stitches.. but my saving grace was that row 12 was a non pattern row.. HOOORAAAY!! for small mercies! Got it all fixed up and straightened out...  But I so hate those facking needles......

And yes, I realize, row 13 is like baby shawl... but it is lacy and the shawl is knit from the inside out... so 13 very long rows!!!

So, anyone want to buy a set of Denise that are missing one of the smaller cables.. but I bought  1 or 2 of the longer cables.... Maybe.. you would have better luck!!!

insert another sigh of relief... here..

Good night!!

Ha ha ha ha .... I am only laughing because that I didn't understand a bit of this post as I am not a knitter....at all but I totally got your frustration and I have been there with my crafts as well, mainly sewing. Goodness sake baby diapers were a challenge and out of the 10 I made only one actually worked.
