Knitting Omens

  1. Yesterday I found a hole in a sweater. In the past few weeks I've also found a hole in the sole of a sock and in the finger of a glove. I think I need to stock up on cedar.

  2. For some reason the yarn in the current project is getting very, very twisty as I knit. And since it's a fair-isle type design, there isn't a good way to hold the ball of yarn and let the project spin out. I need a turntable for the ball of yarn to sit on as I knit.

  3. While I was getting my hair done, I turned the heel of a sock I'm working on. Somewhere I must have made a counting mistake (I also have a vague rememberance about the pattern having a mistake) because the number of stiches worked out all wrong. Rip, rip, rip.
