the queen is in the corner

but she isn't counting her money.
the queen is in time out.
look here, the needles have returned home, and a sleeve is started.
knit knit, hmm, looks a little large. i changed the rate of decrease, as i want the sleeves to be 2 1/2 inches longer than marina.
measure with marina, ack, the sleeve is too big.
rip rip start over using the every 4th row decrease.
knit knit knit, the bloody new sleeve still looks too big!
measure again, the sleeve needs 8 stitches narrower than what i have.
raja says, "you woke me up for this?"
"i think not."
a 2 x2 rib noro scarf sounds really good right about now...

The brain sometimes has to rest. Third time will be the charm.

I wonder what's up? It might be because you are using the Hebridean instead of the yarn you're used to using for Fair Isle... that seems as good a guess as any.

That cat is too much! I feel your pain with the queen. I hope it's third time lucky for you.
