I am ready to add the third skein to the Pine Forest Blanket. I knew I wanted to snap a quick photo for the blog before I sit down to attach that skein. I laid the blanket on the living room rug to spread it out to get a really good view. I took out my phone to take a photo and what do I see? A mistake! Can you see it, that odd line nearly half way up? I repeated the same row twice!! I felt a moment of dizzy spinning nausea. My immediate reaction was to think “Rip it out! That’s go to go.”
See it in the center of the photo. I took another moment to think about the whole situation. It’s a blanket for a baby who will deposit bodily fluids and near solids on it. I don’t think he’s going to notice. Overall it’s not a huge issue. It looks fine. It serves it’s purpose. I’m going to take a deep breath and let it go. This is a learning moment. I am not perfect and my knits don’t have to be either.
17ufosin2017 report: This cabinet has been cleaned and organized. Many outdated items were dealt with. I filled half a trash can with recyclable packaging and most of a trash bag with the contents of those packages. It’s been eons since I did this. There were things shoved in the back dated 2014. I’m not proud about that. Another thing that’s embarrassing is how many things I have in multiple: 4 boxes of salt, 2 of coconut oil, and 2 recently opened jars of peanut butter. Hopefully being able to see into the cabinet will prevent this in the future.
This was dinner last night. Yes I cleaned out a cabinet and made a rather involved dinner. I feel so domestic. I used this recipe for Mexican Cauliflower Rice and this fajita seasoning which I sprinkled on the chicken which I baked in the oven with onions and green peppers. It was tasty and everyone loved it. It will be a once in a while meal because it took longer to wash the dishes and clean up the kitchen than it took to eat. That really should only happen on holidays.
