I think I jinxed myself by telling people my new deadline for Italian's sweater. I thought it would be safe to tell people about the progress I was making and how confident I felt about finishing the sweater in mid-September. I even believed I was giving myself an ample buffer, just in case something went wrong. Well something went wrong twice! The sweater pattern consist of a four row repeat for a little over 100 rows. Last night while at book club, I noticed I had botched the last four row repeat. Then, I noticed I had botched the four row repeat again about 20 rows back. I was very upset with my knitting and took revenge! I frogged the entire sleeve. "Ha ha!" I thought as I ripped back 68 rows. After I smuggly wound up my ball, I realized that I didn't really take revenge on my knitting. Rather, I think my knitting got the best of me.
