Decision Reached...

Remember this?
It's the Steeler's Aibhlinn...being made so I could endure freezing my behind at all those Steeler's football games I was going to be forced to sit thru because of the MFMP??

Well, I think it's time to admit defeat (kinda like The Steelers had to this past season, hehe). I am never going to wear it - might I remind you yet again that this shade of gold is simply the worst color I can wear? - as the relationship with MFMP is now history? (And can I tell you that I really am not into football, so there is little regret on that point...)

It wasn't a sweater. But the curse was just as deadly. Do not make something because you are in love. It will seal your relationship's doom!

And I'm really not stressing about this, y'all. I'm past it. But I was looking at the sidebar and seeing all those 2006 OTN projects, saw this one and said, "You know, it's time to face facts! To the frog pond it goes." I know I'll use the yarn in something...maybe a ripple blanket?

And a quick question: That Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts? Since the foundation is stockinette - does the finished scarf EVER lie flat? This is such a wonderful knit, especially in the Koigu, but please tell me I'm not going to hate this scarf because it's one-sided and curls up on itself?

Oh...btw. I just finished Stephanie's latest book and if you haven't read it you must! In light of the muscle spasms I'm enduring (ok, fibro/Lupus flare continues, but who's gripping?) I spent the evening lying on the microwaved rice pack with pain-killers in my system, but it's an hysterical read even without the pills, I promise!

I'm so glad I found the "Land of Knitters!" (especially blogland, and my local RVKnitSpin group!)

Sounds like a very good decision to rip that out. You don't need it hanging around!

Things can always be repurposed into a charity knitting project; glad you can move on from the past and look at the future as holding more promise than the relationship, though my heart has grieved a bit for yours.

Do you have enough of the black to turn it into a lace shawl? Black goes with everything even if it is difficult to knit without a good light.. Then you can wear it inside or at the symphony without worrying about freezing any part of your anatomy..

Rip away! I've wondered the same thing about the chevron scarf.

Nothing like a failed project to help you move on. Well, green is the color of healing... *big hug*

I have Stephanie's book on its way to me. Can't wait for it to get here! I didn't know you have fibro. I do too! I hope your flare abates soon. *gentle hug*

I'm glad you had something funny to occupy yourself for a while.

And that is a good decision to frog.

I love that chevron scarf. I hope it doesn't roll. :(

If you want a chevron knit the one I gave you the pattern for. The one I did in Koigu. There is no wrong side.

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
