Annoying knitting things


  • Nearing the end of a long tail cast on and realizing the long tail is about two inches too short.
  • Patterns that don’t have row numbers.
  • Forgetting a yarn-over.
  • Yarn snobs (not everybody can afford to buy $25 skeins, dammit)
  • Realizing the size needles you need are the one size you don’t have.
  • Having to go to work instead of being able to stay at home and knit.
  • Splices in the middle of a skein.
  • Realizing halfway through a project that you really should have taken the time to make a gauge swatch.
