misery

i'm literally running out the door to meet friend's for dinner (a sort of anti-valetine's day celebration, if you will) but i just discovered that i have made (insert dramatic music here) a mistake.

i'm not sure why i'm surprised. i should be thrilled that i made it through the first 30 or so rows of the pattern without a mistake. but still.

anyway, back the mistake ... i have mis-crossed my cables. i was supposed to do cable 5 left and i did cable 5 right (or maybe it was the other way around, i dunno, clearly having some trouble with the whole "chart" thing). i didn't even realize the mistake until i was another 5 rounds past it.

i just couldn't face ripping back those 5 long, long rounds of 180+ stitches each in superduper clingy wool. so i forged ahead. i thought about doing all of the cables backwards, but wasn't sure how that would work out later in the pattern ... so i'm just going to pretend that's the way it's supposed to be. and everyone else out there is going to have to help me out in this delusion and pretend that's the way it's supposed to be too. that means if you've seen another rogue with cables neatly crossed in the right direction, and then you see my rogue - i don't want to hear it.

sigh.

Hi, Charis -
Hope you are continuing to have great progress. Doesn't rogue mean someone willing to go his or her own unique path? So your varient on the cable direction might be considered an appropriate connection to the name of the pattern. I can't wait to see your next update. I love you. Love, MOM
