Panic!

Something bad keeps happening to everything I'm knitting. It's terrible! The other day I was trying on the first of the green stripey socks after I finished the gusset. I knew it was going to be snug, but I could barely get it on. And then I snapped a size 0 dpn in half trying to get the damn sock off. So I frogged. And I cast on with a different sock yarn. And I frogged. So I thought I'd start the scarf that needs to be done by the 29th, and I frogged. I have failed so many times at knitting over the past week, I wonder if I will ever be able to actually produce something halfway decent again. What is wrong with me?!

I also lost a dpn from a different set, making 2 sets unknittable right now. I've checked every pocket on every purse but can't find the damn needle!

I worked a little on the handspun top-down raglan, but I really don't like the look of the handspun knitted. I am very proud of how even and sometimes machine-like my knitting is, but this handspun looks like it was made by a beginner. It may get frogged and turned into a lap-blanket. It really hate to spend that much money on a lap blanket though...Any suggestions?

I'm making progress on my essays- progress that makes a snail look like it's moving at the speed of light. Seriously. Yesterday I wrote 700 words and it nearly killed me. These essays have to be at least 8000 words. And there's 4 of them.

And I walked in on Luke and Sere having an intimate moment in the kitchen last night.

I have no idea what I'm doing here.

I am sorry that you are having trouble with your knitting. Sounds to me like you are having a classic case of stress induced bad crafting.

On the love front.... I can offer friendly advice from someone who played the dating game and won.... which you can happily ignore should you choose (without any scornful thoughts from me!) Stop having romantic thoughts about people while you are in England. I know. Easier said than done. But you are a rational human being with control of your own emotions and, in the long run any relationship you start there will only (most likely) ends sadly.

That being said.... You are a great girl who is going places in the world and it seems to me like you just need a day off. A day off from school, and your schoolmates. Maybe you should find yourself a little tour group or something and go on a day tour by yourself. (the group itself will be your protection! Just a thought.

Good luck with your essays and your crafting!
