Today was a zero day, term borrowed from the Appalachian Trail through hikers who take a day off occasionally while hiking the 2,100+ mile trail from Georgia to Maine. Or vice versa. (In case you can't tell, I've been reading a story about a through hiker) Anyway, today started with a blah feeling and pain in my shoulder and feet. I stumbled through the morning not really wanting to do anything. But then Jellybean's blanket called out to me and I sat down and worked on putting another few rows on it. I sat happily crocheting away, watching a little TV, and congratulating myself on making such good progress.
The pattern is a row of dc's followed by a row of sc and bobbles. I have used each color once now with the exception of this last one. The last color was going so well on the dc row and I was so happy because I would finally have my color pattern set and I could move on merrily adding rows. I made the turn to start the bobble row and I noticed that something didn't look right. I checked and looked and checked again. Then I saw it. I had lost a bobble!!! Yep, on the last bobble row, I had missed the very first bobble. Curses!!! I had to pull back 2 rows to get to the beginning to put in that bobble. I finished that row and put the blanket away. Tomorrow I will try again to put the last color on and see if I can avoid dropping any more bobbles or losing my marbles.
So a short post to let you know I'm still around and working on the blanket. More news later on the baby sampler.
As always, thank you for stopping by. Have a great day wherever you might be.
