Knitting/Blogging Fail

This was going to be another deluxe post with pictures... if not for the following circumstances:

1. I started really cranking on the Tapestry Mittens. This is the most dangerous stage of a project for me because I start thinking things like, "I'm really pretty effing awesome at knitting. My manual dexterity rocks. Screw knitting, I should have been a mother-effing neurosurgeon." While in this case, the thoughts may have been a teensy bit justified-- I mean, come on, two-color stranding with ONE HAND? Shit is sick-- they usually lead to one thing:

2. I screwed up the pattern. "Shit. The little curly tendril things are not lining up anymore. Woe is me, my folly shall be exposed to the world..."

3. "WAIT. Oh, ha HA. THIS will make for a clever little blog post once I take pictures of my foolish mistake and describe the silly, silly thoughts I was thinking while making it. Kick ass!"

4. Thanks to daylight savings time, it is dark at 4PM. "I refuse to use flash! My blog deserves pretty, day-lit pictures! I'll take them tomorrow!" Knitting goes back in its bag...

5. Turns out, my mistake was not quite as drastic as it seemed... in fact, it's pretty minor. I probably could correct in in less than 10 minutes. In fact, it's pretty much impossible to distinguish in any of the pictures I have waited for the light of day to take.

To sum up: Minor knitting mistake + pathological need to blog about it = at least four hours of much needed knitting time wasted + this piece o' crap. Wah-wah-waaaah.
