Fuck.

I was blocking the Falling Leaves scarf (for my sister-in-law) and while I was pinning it out, right before my eyes, I watched a stitch pop loose and start to run.



See that big, honkin' hole circled in orange? IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THERE. I'm not sure if it's a dropped stitch that somehow got past me (if so, how, in a lace pattern where every stitch matters?) or if the yarn tore (oh, wouldn't that be lovely?). I was pulling the scarf out pretty hard, it's possible the thread popped. Fucking mohair.

Either way, I'm going to have to repair this goddamn thing before it's ever been worn. That really pisses me off.

For now it's got a pin stuck in the stitch to keep it from running further, while it dries.

You know those annoying knitting blogs where everything goes perfectly and they never have anything strange happen? No danger of that around here.

The rest of the scarf looks good, though.


I need a drink. Or drugs. Or chocolate. Or something.

Ouch.
It broke.
You can see one end of the thread on the lower left side of the orange cirle, and then the other end at the upper right side.

Ouch.
Merry Christmas??

Yup. Fuck. I'd be swearing up a storm here-- the really foul, un-pc, sening my soul to hell kind of swearing. But the good news is that when it's done being repaired, you're done with the damned-all mohair, and it can go look lovely on someone else...
