Small Misfortunes

If there was ever a week for not feeling sorry for oneself, this is it. I have spent quite a bit of my free time glued to the computer screen, reading updates about the catastrophe in Japan. I feel blessed at the moment that the only misfortunes in my life are a moderate head cold, a seemingly congenital inability to correctly estimate the length of yarn needed for a long-tail cast on, and this:

Lovely colorwork... wrong gauge.

My heart goes out to the Japanese people-- I truly hope the crisis will soon be over so that healing and rebuilding can begin. I wish there was more that I could do than offer money and moral support-- but such as it is, I will give it.

I count myself lucky that putting this back together is a relatively easy task.
