Boring. BORING!! Rip!!!

Blahbitty blah blah blah.

Why do they call a yarn purple when it's really BROWN?? RIP!!!

Row 5 comes after Row 4 four, dude, not ROW 2 !! RIPP!

I'll join you for a drink in the 'knitting - blah' corner.

Jean said...

Very humorous, every knitter can identify with what you wrote. I am fortunate enough that my Niece has a larger foot than me otherwise I would have to frog that beautiful sock I am working on, I may still frog back the toe and extend the lace a little more (am still debating). It is good to see you post and I shall look forward to your next post - pictures or not!

Abigail said...

What a bummer!

Sorry about all the ripping.

Hopefully the next knit will be better.

Judy G. said...

Been there done that. I feel for you.

Pat said...

Karen said...

Sorry to hear you're having problems too. I thought it was just me playing the knit and RIP game...

While I feel your pain, I love your humor even more. :-D

Magaki said...

You have my deepest sympathy :)

Lissa said...

Mercury is next in retrograde come about the 24th of September, but you're not alone in feeling its effects early!

Kay-From the Back Yard said...

You made my day! I have sooo been there, and I laughed when I read your post.

What keeps us knitting?

Yarndude said...

:(

Jason said...

Actually, I do like to see some photos. lol Sorry that you had a bad knitting nightmare.

Paisley said...

ahhh - letting it all out - it's very cleansing.

Hope the knitting perks up soon.

fleegle said...

I'm so sorry, Dave...I do wish you had included some photos, though.

fleegle runs away quickly while snickering into her WIP...

KellyD said...

I am SOOO there! In another hour or so I may become homicidal! LOL

LaurieM said...

Knitting's like that sometimes.

How are you going to cope?

=Tamar said...

I have a purple hat that looks brown in most indoor lighting. It is gloriously purple in daylight and in good LED light. Purple plus yellow makes brown. (It's why some older people wear purple a lot; it looks brown because the lens of the eye turns yellowish with age.)

Sorry about the need for ripping.

Taxastrikkeren said...

Fotos? I saw a movie in my head when I was reading it ;-)

lexa said...

Wow. Yes, maybe it's a good thing there are no pictures! :)

trek said...

I've noticed that about 5.
Sometimes, that is.
When I am paying attention to what I am doing.
Otherwise, what's wrong with 5 following 2?

stephen said...

I think we can all relate to having one of those kind of days.

Hope your day went better today.

Carrie K said...

But with pictures I could see your pain as well as feel it. ;)

Hope today was better!

Teyani said...

poiii-fectly said.
bee there done that, bought the tee shirt.
I toast you with a glass of cabernet.
may the knitting fairies be kind to you in the morning :-)

KnitNana said...

I can so relate...a certain sock heel, specifically!
It will get better...
(((hugs)))

nova said...

There was a similar seen at my place this weekend while knitting a lace shawl--instead of purple and brown the yarn was either white or cream. I hope things are more exciting and successful in your neck of the woods.

Missy said...

My knitting progress has been going much the same way lately. Good luck finding a yarn and pattern that works for you.

Ariel said...

Oddly comforting to know it's going around. Hope your knitting cooperates very soon!

Angelika said...

We all have days like this. Maybe you need to put your needles down, breath and try it again later. Good luck.

Alwen said...

Heh. This is why even knitting needs a naughty corner to sit in!

gilraen said...

Better luck next time!!! :D

Sarah said...

What a let down. I hope that ripping was all you have to do for a while!

Jackie said...

I can related to every single word.

dickie said...

I know how you feel. =(

Patricia said...

Drinking and tinking...a fine, fine thing. Well, the drinking is, anyway.

Morticcia said...

May I syndicate this post? It is LOL funny. And I've been there and it really isn't funny. So it is.

Okay, I can't wait for a response. I'm totally stealing your post, but will of course give credit to where its due!
