    I would have given up by now. Some things are just not meant to be… Good luck! Jill

    You poor thing. Some days EVERYTHING goes wrong. I advise walking away, consume chocolate and return when calm. I find chocolate heals all ills and even if it doesn’t calm you down, gives you a nice sugar high to rush you through all the unpicking.

    Emily is really a beautiful sweater. I think it’s worth it. I sympathize with you because I am currently working on a pair of cursed socks. The mistakes weren’t so colorful as yours, but yesterday I frogged 1.5 socks because I finally realized that I was knitting the wrong size.

    Oh man that is so horrendous!! Why is it when things go wrong they really go wrong? I blame hormones most of the time, but I wonder if male knitters have days like this too!

    Hi Susan

    Just a note to say I enjoy your blog – I was wondering about making Emily with some Rowan that I bought for a cardigan called Alef which I can’t master – but it seems Emily has her own gremlins!

    Ugh. No way I’d bother fixing that. I’m so lazy. Or sometimes I say that and then I just have to walk away for a day or two to calm down first.

    Hi Susan,
    I’ve been looking at your Blogiversary and there is an omission. Please add amongst your acheivements – “Getting my sister back into knitting after many years absence” I’m thoroughly enjoying it, thank you. I love the blog too!
