Years ago, I earned my living programming computers.
No. really. I did.
But anyway, one of the more tedious and yet finicky (and thus demanding of very close attention) tasks a programmer has is debugging the code. Chasing down that one line where you missed a semi-colon that's screwing up the whole shooting match. That task wasn't why I quit programming for a living, but it is one I don't miss.
Today, I'm reliving those programming days. I'm de-bugging knitting code. Hunting down the source of an error in a pattern that I drafted some eight months ago is not my idea of a great time. Luckily, I have help. May all the powers that be heap blessings upon test knitters.
And may they help me trace back the error that's causing Joy problems so that she can finish the lovely mitts and I can publish the pattern and get back to figuring out this lupine leaf.
