Certainly it is making me second-guess my hobby.
Not exactly the smartest thing I do. Ostensibly I do it because it is relaxing. However, I can't really say that getting the stitches picked up and the edging going around on the stole has been RELAXING. This is neither the fault of the pattern or the yarn.
As is true of most of my angst, it is all due to my innate IMPATIENCE. The longest interchangeable cable I own is 32" and I can't wait for mail order to bring a longer one. Still I think I'll order one so I won't be in this pickle next time.
And while I'm at it, I should just order some yarn, too, right? Yeah, what I really need just now is more WOOL.
