I went to get new tires for my car on Friday. I had to get them on before driving up the freeway to the dentist (My dentist is about 20 miles north of me, but that's a different story). I took my Philosopher's Wool sweater with me to work on. It is in a great big basket, but I figured I would be at the tire place long enough to work on it.
Instead, I started taking balls of yarn out of the basket and untangling them--the cats had discovered the sweater last week sometime. I took out several balls and wound them up, and then came to the balls hanging off the sleeve. I thought I would start working on the sleeve so I could release the yarn ends to another use, and realized that I had used the wrong color. For 2 rows. Well, 2 and a half. So I spent the entire time I was waiting at the tire place tinking back two rows of color work. I have no idea how I messed up the colors. I could tell just by looking that the bright orange color on the sleeve was no where on the chart.
So instead of making progress, I regressed. And although I got 2 new tires, I need some repair on the back hub assembly. One step forward, two back. Sigh.
