More Haste Less Speed

Ok, so it's like this.

Picture this, if you will. You're up against a deadline and knitting like the wind.

Solution. Stay up late every night after the kids are in bed and chores are done, knitting feverishly?

Nu-huh!

Stay up late 2 nights in a row and discover mis-twisted cables several times, which take ages to fix. Not by tinking back or frogging you understand, but with the tried-and-true-but-tricky method of dropping stitches and laddering them back up with a crochet hook. Taking care to twist them in the right row and in the right direction.

Nightmare.

So.

A new solution?

Go to bed and hope for better tomorrow.

Yup.

Bless you, better you than me, poop, been there done that, hate cables sometimes because of it. Good Luck with the rest of the project. Again, thanks for the birthday wishes. You Ravelers have been bombing me with greetings and it is a mystery to me...

This affliction normally hits me before Christmas every year. I'm desperately trying to finish gift knitting, and I inevitably make more mistakes. I guess we need to realise we can't knit whilst tired!
