As in, apparently I cannot knit and hold a conversation at the same time...at least, not knit something that requires me to think. I had knitting with the library ladies last night, and took Monkey to get some work done, and I have somehow managed to drop two stitches without actually changing my stitch count (really, what the heck??), so I need to actually frog about 1 lace repeat. We'll see how it goes. This is where I have much less confidence in my skills.
*deep breath* Off to rip. Will post an update.
