Disaster

I can barely type through my tears gentle readers. I've been crying for hours and I could just kick myself.

I've cut my Oregon Vest.

Yes, I the brave steeker, the one who likes to "steek naked", the one who needs no wine, or support group to cut her steeks, I have royally wrecked my precious Alice Starmore.

I think this is it for me as a knitter. I don't believe I can ever recover from such a disaster. I may never knit again.

There's nothing more to say. Thanks for everything.

  1. Okay, I think you got me!

    I was horrified for you and wondering what could have possibly happened during steeking. Just as I started to leave a supportive message I saw the tag for the post.

    hmmm, you know what that makes me...

  8. Good thing I clicked from Bloglines to the real blog page. The tags don't show up in Bloglines.

    Now I can breathe again.
