It was a little after ten p.m. Richard’s back was bugging him; no problem, my turn then.

The light out that side burned out years ago and somehow we just never seem to remember to replace it–actually, we couldn’t now, not that obsolete type. Eh. I could barely tell where the dark plastic trashcan was to open the lid–okay, there, over you go.

I always have this guilty feeling that I must be clonking some poor raccoon in the head when I do that.

Meantime: fussy pattern, super-splitty fussy yarn. Bad combination, and I’m still dragging; I didn’t want to be bothered with it. I ripped and started over. Nice, plain purl rows–no purl two through back loops stuff. I didn’t want to be no stinkin’ fancy-pants designer tonight, I just wanted to knit.

And then I had to go off on a tangent and make it come out a new way anyway.  It’s coming along nicely now. I quite like it.

Even when dragging, you’re still designing. So maybe not fancy pants, but swirly skirt? Stay warm, hydrated and keep on knitting. Definitely part of your get-well prescription.

I love it when a plan comes together.

I once clonked some critter (squirrel? raccoon?) tossing out a pile of compost in the dark.

Bev says, “Sometimes simple is better.”
And sometimes fancy just doesn’t work.

I took the garbage out at a place I was employed at, it must been right after dusk, and out came two cats. I screamed and tossed the bag in the air, thank heavens it didn’t bust open.Another time I was delivering papers and a family of skunks wander out from behind the trash bins at a fast food place, Makes you wonder sometimes.

I’m with Bev. Simple wins over complicated, when you need it to. And of course, you being you, you add in a bit of complicated, just to make it a little interesting.

Happy knitting, dear friend!
