Cast on 340 stitches. Join to work in the round without twisting (2 tries). Work in lace pattern, decreasing in one round in each 4-round pattern. Knit 36 rounds thinking, at round 34, that something is wrong but trusting the pattern. Tink back to round 32 then reknit the same 4 rounds. Realize that the pattern chart must be followed while at the SAME TIME reading the written pattern. Realize that the problem started on round 2 (yes, that’s right – at the beginning). Remind myself that I do know how to knit and I do know how to read but maythe 2 don’t work well together for me. Remove needles from work and start rewinding yarn as project is ripped apart. Hope to get needles back into fabric by round 2 so that starting over doesn’t involve casting on 340 stitches and joining in the round without twisting! No crying. Crying will only be allowed if project must be restarted from the cast on. Get glass of wine.
