study? or knit?

study? or knit?

I had a midterm Wednesday yet the night before I could not keep myself from working on this damned shawl. Sometime around 1 in the morning, I found that I'd misplaced a yo/decrease pair, and had to drop 5 stiches about 5 rows down to get to it. The next morning, I knew I really *should* study before going in to write the exam but I was so obsessed with the idea of fixing my error that I couldn't even sit down till I'd done it. So with safety pins and my size 1 dpns, I knit back up, found another mistake, again dropped down about 6 rows, knit those back up, then did a few rows just to make sure all was well.

Then I was relaxed enough to study :)

Been there done that. I cannot go on till I fix my mistakes too. Way to go. How did you do on you exam?

Ha! It reminds me of of when my friend Dee was studying for finals. She took a break and did her incometax.

Oh, could you please add me to the Icarus Shawl KAL. I promise not to fly too near the sun.

thanks for asking, knitalittle! I just found out my midterm results - aced it. Behold, the beneficial mind-soothing properties of knitting!
