    Just need to vent!! I've started knitting a hat for a Christmas present and i've been reknitting it several times today!!! Uhhggg!!!

    It's on circular needles, and it's knit one, purl one, and i keep forgettting to change!! Or i even change in the middle of a round!!

    I've rekitted the same part about three times now!!! I'm getting tired of ripping out stitches, and knitting backwards! Yikes!

    I feel blonde!

    At this rate i'm going to wear out the yarn before the hats even finished! LOL

    I've never tried a knitting loom, I'm not sure what one is, my lion brand catolgue shows a knitting board i was curious about??

    I finally have it going right again, but not nearly as far as i should be for the time i put in it!! I got smart and put a marker were i need to switch the knitting.

    You have me curious about the loom.

    Ahh,it's just the old fibro fog.

    I've had a good dose of that this week.

    For several yrs I've made my own Christmas cards.

    One yr I used a photo of my tree.

    Last yr I painted simple Christmas pics on card stock and used one of my moms poems on the inside.

    This year I have a new printer and decided to use a picture of Jesus I had painted and another of moms Christmas poems on the inside.

    For the life of me I couldn't keep things straight long enough to do a few cards.

    Wasted more than half of my ink when I printed the pic upside down. Another half when I copied the poem upside down.

    It was a simple process. I've done it many times before.

    But the day I did my cards I could not get my brain to function.

    Try opening your xmas card from the top then reading the poem inside , upside down.

    I finally got about 30 finished and quit.

    Decided if anybody else got one it would be made in some foreign country with Happy Everything written on it.
