Karen is knitting the ROAD TRIP VEST.
Karen copied the pattern and put it in a pretty protector.
Karen informed me I am knitting one too.
Karen has overestimated my talent.
Karen says I'm going to knit it exactly as it is written.
Which is in Chinese.
Well, it may as well be Chinese to me.
It's not that I don't want to knit the vest.
I have some supernatural powers you know.
I can see the future.
I see tears,
I see frogging,
I see Karen knitting the vest for me....
Here's the thing, I need someone to dumb it down for me.
Let's take out the cables and the chart.
Let's Write it out row by row instead of the talky way knitters write out patterns.
Someone hand me the yarn and the needles.
Let's face it; I'm stuck in about 5th grade in the knitting world.
More important: I like where I'm stuck.
I could keep on knitting socks and hats and blankets pretty much until my hands give out on me...
When someone loves you and gives you a pattern and says she knows you can do this....
Maybe it is time to listen to her..
There is a storm on the horizon.....
SO lets vote:
Yes: Kathy B launches into the vest and the great vast unknown which is reading a real pattern.
NO: You tell Karen why Kathy B should not enter the land of tears and frogging and frustration...
Feel free to talk to Karen directly in the comments, she's a lurker true and true. She'll read them all!
