She's Come Undone

Ayup. The Boa/Matrix scarf I was making for the woman who drives me to work came off the needles in my travels. Damn Susan Bates needles anyhow. I'm not going to try to pick it up, that's just too annoying with yarn like this. I'm going to see if I can frog it, reknit it with TWO strands of the Matrix for a little more pink in the mix, and do it on my nice new wooden needles (which I have never used before).

You will note on my sidebar that I have now finished NINE items. Yes. Another dishcloth. No picrure -- lucky you!

I'm sick as a dog and heading off to work an 8-hour graveyard shift (after an 8-hour day shift with no sleep in between because my husband seems to have been delayed coming home ...) so I'm hoping, if I don't stab myself to death with my Addis, to have another one finished tonight. I'm about 14 rows from the end.

Don't count on it, though; I'm toast.

With butter.

Wishing you a speedy recovery......from that which ails you, and from the frogging incident.

I hope that boa doesn't thwart your efforts to frog. Furry yarns can be very stubborn.
I have enough of the boa so that if it resists my efforts, I'll just snip and toss. I only did about 9" or so, it won't be the end of the world.

Hey, if I snip and toss and start again, is that ~two~ FOs?
No, I don't think it counts as two finished objects, but it does reduce the stash. :-)
Oh, I'm pretty sure if it reduces the stash it's an FO. For instance, I'm sending some lambswool to Ann, and I'm going to count that as an FO ...

However I am NOT going to count the yarn I won in the Harlot's thingie or the cotton from Freddy as adding to the stash ...
