This sweater has been anything but a Lady and I’m growing frustrated for the first time in my short knitting career. Lace socks? No problem. Lace scarf? No problem. Stupidly simple worsted weight lace sweater? Problems up the wazoo.

Stitches keep disappearing–always in the same part of the sweater. Can not find them ANYWHERE. They’re not dropped. No accidental p2 togethers. They keep disappearing like Jimmy Hoffa. Maybe they’re keeping him company. Yo, Jimmy, I want my stitches back.

I am knitting so slowly right now, so deliberately, that this project will take forever compared to ones I’ve done much more quickly. There are not enough words to express just how vexed I am. I really wanted to get this done before my daughter is born, but at this pace? I might be done with the body by then, but definitely not the whole thing.
I am having a rare day where I wish I were a drinker.
