Last night I had to frog 4 lines of the Guernsey, which doesn’t seem like much except that I did it stitch by stitch. The lace pattern on one block wasn’t coming out right, the holes weren’t lined up. I have no idea where I went wrong but when I redid it, it was fine. I just hope I don’t have to repeat that episode!

I didn’t do a stitch of knitting yesterday. Today my horoscope says to focus on home improvement projects, so I think that means I need to clean my apartment.

A conversation at SnB last night about looking for a job has sent me into a further panic. I feel like I should sit and design comps all day to beef up my portfolio, learn Flash, do whatever I can to find work. I’m just unmotivated in that respect, wish I knew of an alternate career I’d enjoy and make a good living doing, wish I was better at networking for freelance clients, wish I wasn’t in this awful state right now!
