That's my Sister in the front and my Nephew and My Son in the back, riding up from the Barn with some more boards. About 45 minutes after she left we get a call; her truck blew a rod. My husband took the call and got directions to where she was. We took off without a thought to bringing a cell phone, or anything like that. This is probably where we should've started using brain cells.

Since that time I have had issues with what they call Nominal Aphasia. I can be talking about some object and cannot bring the name of it up. It's easy stuff: like refridgerator, door, radio...and today Clothes Basket. I needed my son to fill the basket up with clothes from the dryer but I couldn't remember the word "clothes basket." Out of frustration, I just pointed and said, "THAT thing, fill it up."
Why do I put this on a blog? There's got to be another young person out there who has had the same thing happen to them. The good thing about this is that it does become less and less frequent over the subsequent years. BUT, if you start feeling all out of sorts like I did, for crying out loud...Go To The Emergency Room. Man, I could've had a massive stroke and kicked it right there and then...........In my Sister's house on one of her kids' bed. She'd never forgive me for that!

I'm done with Chart A and B. I've been working on Chart C but it's been uncooperative. That's the stole in pink. I've been selling my bags on ebay again, so I thought it would look nice next to them.
Pink is not my color either so why am I knitting in it? Not a clue. I picked up a ball of yarn out of the stash and started with it out of simple frustration. The other tries at the mystery stole

The next thing to do is to put a tie around the channel by the head and send it off for Cliffy to try. If it passes muster, it will be made up repeatedly, but in silk.

It's the lineup of bags:There's about 8 bags done total, but one of them is holding my Mystery Stole in progress. The ones above are about 8 1/2" tall and 6" in diameter. Each have an inner pocket divided into 5 slots for dpns. Ok, well here let me show you:
It's a nice pattern so far. The main concern with knitting from a chart is to use the lifeline. See the white yarns going through it? When you get done knitting a row, the yarn is slipped through the stitches with a yarn needle. The idea is if you screw up, you only have to frog down to that line. After doing this with a new yarn, I've only had to frog once. That makes it much less frustrating!
