Thanks for everyone’s commiseration. The work disaster turned out to be not as bad as I anticipated. I still had to re-do everything, but it was easier the second time and I even improved it a bit. The biggest pick-me-up was provided by Mama Snook, who sent me some knitting needles, a ball of yarn, and a groovy kids’ book entitled “Fun With Wool.” As soon as I get the quilt done, it’s time to tackle knitting!
