Thanks for the advice, all…it seems I was missing the last stitch in the row. I did another swatch with white yarn and I didn’t have any problem with that, so I guess it was mainly a problem with trying to work with black yarn in a poorly-lit room full of distractions.
So anyway I got nothin’ today. I still haven’t lined those bags. The weekend was pretty busy, just no time for it. Also I was possibly just the faintest bit hung over yesterday (we won’t get into how sad it is that a few beers can leave me hung over—oh, but I will tell you that a really hot bartender hugged me. That was fun) and also had been up until 5:00 AM the night before, so I just wasn’t up to anything that required energy and didn’t positively have to be done.
