Short rows — oh, my!

Yeah, so I definitely did NOT have short rows down before I started. How over-confident I was after taking part in Short Rows with Carol Feller. I even closed my eyes and visualized the video as I knitted.

I had to go back and re-watch it again after I realized my stitches were twisted. I didn’t bother going back and re-knitting either. Whomever acquires this scarf — be it myself or someone else — will never notice nor care.

I got it right somewhere around the middle of the second set of wraps. Now that I have it down, I’ll a pro :) I cannot highly recommend the free Crafsy class.

Things have been getting crazy the past few days and I haven’t had a chance to make a dent on the scarf. Monday we all walked into work, one vital person already out on vacation the entire week, to discover that month end ACH billing had been duplicated for our clients. I work in merchant processing and happen to love my job — but not this week! The error wasn’t our fault, however we are the point of contact for the merchants.

I can understand their frustration, especially if it caused them to overdraft. We were kind of in the dark too. We didn’t know what had occurred until the first two merchants contacted us. Once the third called in (in the space of a few minutes) we knew we were going to have a very unfortunate day.

The bad news is I didn’t get to take lunch on Monday for some knitting relaxation. The good news is the company bought us lunch. I still craved the needles all day.

Anyway, to to the pictures of the messed up short-rows and the not-so-messed-up-short-rows.  I’ve made some progress since these photos, I just haven’t had the chance to take more!
