I jinxed myself after my last post talking about knitting euphoria! Damn! I was quite far on my adorable EZ surprise baby sweater, and then I recounted, and was off by 2 stitches....hmmmm....I clearly must have not done a SK2P someplace along the line....So I'll just do a couple of K2togethers ....but EZ is like a puzzle and what if that mucks it up????? So I decided to knit back until I found the error. I have been knitting back for 5 hours, and still have not found it. I am down to Row27 so guess what...I'm starting over. I could have been back to where I started if instead of knitting back, I would have started over in the first place, but who knew it would be so freaking complicated! Can you tell totally upset I am about this? Sweater class is on Saturday morning. Ruth is done with her sweater, as I'm sure most everyone else is and they are probably ready to start their next EZ project. I'll be the dunce of the class....Damn!
Some good news...I have turned the heel on dad's sock and will now wizz away down the foot. That's about all of the knitting I have been doing.

Other news:
Yet another trip to the Emergency Room last week....Joe was bottling wine and pushing a cork thru a bottle. The bottle exploded and Joe's hands went straight down thru the broken glass. Wine (bright purple wine) and glass all over the basement and all over Joe. Thank goodness it missed his face and eyes. He has 4 stitches on his left thumb, 6 stitches on his right pinky knuckle (a tendon was grazed) and more 5 more stitches on his left hand. They are very very sore. Luckily, we were only there for 3 hours which is a fast trip to ER.

The rest of our family is doing well, thank goodness. Fall has been so beautious here....
After watching the fires, I'm not going to complain about cold and snow.....

Have a good week and stay safe.

Oh my God! I am so sorry to hear about Joe. Imagine, all that wine wasted! And it was red wine to boot. I am very sorry about your loss.

My best wishes for a speedy recovery..... of the wine.
