A journal of gardening, orchids, knitting and there may be dragons.

i tink, therefore i am
Were Decartes a knitter, he would most likely tink. I just tried to tink, but ended up frogging an entire experimental lace bookmark. Lace is very hard to tink (knit, backwards) when one has made an error. Those yarnovers and decreases are difficult to undo properly, even if you have a straight purl side. Since the bookmark is small, I can reknit quickly. Took a break to make a couple dozen blueberry muffins from a recipe in Sheila Lukins' USA Cookbook. Meanwhile, Lenny and Sasha sleep oblivious to the little pile of frogged yarn on the kitchen table.
