My Name Is Pam And...

...I'm a Dumb-ass!

I got through row 24 on that doily and discovered a critical error on row FIVE!!!  I couldn't bear to rip it out so The Captain did it for me. Now I'm feeling all pissy and don't want to make it. No wonder it was buckling so bad in the middle. I thought it just needed a good blocking. LOL. No block would fix that mistake. I only had thirteen shell thingies going around and it was supposed to have 21. DUH. You'd think I'd have noticed that sooner!

I'm gonna eat some chocolate and think about what I'm going to do won't be that doily. I need to walk away from it.

I think I'll look for a Lover's Knot Shawl to make.


  1. Hello Pammy Sue

    That SO annoys me when something like that happens. Actually it puts me off completely....totally!!!

    Chocolate always helps!!

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  2. Oh no .... I can fully understand how you are feeling. I'd do the same thing. Eating chocolate seems like the only way to go !!!!! LOL

  3. I'm sorry :-( That really stinks.
    There are some pretty love knot shawl patterns on ravelry. The summer edition of Interweave Crochet Magazine also has a lot of love knot patterns in it. Good luck.

  4. Oh, no! I would not be happy either. Do you like shrugs? I've made two Solomon's Knot shrugs. They're very easy to make and very pretty. Here's the Ravelry link:

  5. When you get bucked off a horse, you have to get back on and ride or you'll never ride again. :-) I do hope you try the doily again. I had to tear out my shawl 3 times before I got it right! You can do it! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  6. Ugh! That sucks! All that work. Make something else, quick, and don't think about it any more. Lovers knot shawl sounds good. Going to have a look myself on Ravelry.

  7. Stupid Doily!!

  8. Oh what a mistake. But don't give up, when you try it again, you will be glad when you finished row 24.


  9. Haha I have done that so many times Pammy Sue! enjoy your chocolate, make something quick and easy then you may want to go back to it. :)

  10. Oh, I feel your pain, sister.

    Chocolate. It's the best medicine. blessings ~ tanna

  11. I know the feeling, after ripping out the sweater I was making four times, I had had it. I think you should try again, the yarn is so beautiful.

  12. I am sending hugs your way. What a horrible thing to happen!

    I do find that for what ever reason, chocolate always seems to help in these type of situations! :)

    Hugs sweet friend.

  13. You are so funny!!!!! Love your posts!
