I'm Just Wild About Faina....Faina's wild about me....

I'm Smitten...

Faina's Scarf is now at row 50!! Yes, yes, that sounds exciting until you realize she's a healthy 460-odd rows.....

I've realized I really know myself much better than I like to admit. This is because I just had to test my own limits...my own boundaries. I knew full well that I could not successfully knit this detailed pattern during any distraction. I vowed to knit it only when alone...no children...no dog....no sweetie to distract me with their very being.

My lack of multitasking talent was glaringly obvious last night. I thought I could slip one by the ol' knitting goddesses...Surely I could knit a bit on Faina with only one child in the house? After all, it was DQ3 who is 10 and was completely immersed in Wonder Woman (obstensively selected from Netflix for the children...but who am I kidding? I had such the crush on WW when I watched it at that age....).

The third time I had to rip row 24...I began to silently beg the laughing knit goddesses for mercy. Of course, it might have been difficult for them to hear my supplication past the whispered blue streak....

*&%%)....8@@!... What honey?? No, I'm not talking to you sweetie....)83#*&%, Hmm? No, not you, nevermind me, watch the show ....$$@ ...... !$#^^&#.... I said NEVER MIND!! "

I'm thinking I need one of those sound-proof booths they have on some game shows. Anything to block distractions! Even letting the dog out can mess me up...and let's not even talk about answering the phone in mid-row! Aaaaaargh.
