What’s wrong with this picture? Well, besides being a little boring in the content department, there is one really odd development on my knitting landscape…

The needle is the same color as the yarn!

This is causing a crisis of knitting confidence in the workshop. Take a lace pattern, add a splittsy yarn, coupled with a monotone needle with a real pointy end and you have

HAIRPULLINGteethgnashingGRINDINGshakingCHAOS!

After you go through your entire collection of needles, you find THIS is the only needle that will work with your combination of yarn, tension and goofed way of knitting to make an even stitch. Hmmm. You don’t have a BAMBOO needle in this size and suddenly you are convinced this is the ANTIDOTE to your stitch poison SO you run to the yarn store to get one and VOILA!

They’re closed. On a Friday. On PayDay. Which, in your middle-class world is like the biggest door slamming on your head! (Just go to my local Target on a Friday night and see the PayCheck Partay going on over there…)

Should I soldier on or go back for another round of Not Got?
