We've all used it. We've all delayed getting up from our comfy couches and chairs to run errands, or fix dinner, or go to bed saying "just one more row".
We've all finished things faster because we've said "just one more row" even when one more row was 375 stitches.
But today, I'm tinking. I'm tinking because I over used "just one more row".
When you're staying up later than you meant to because that move is longer than you thought it would be, and you're sipping a little wine, and knitting, and watching.... you need to count carefully. So when The Artist lured me into watching the Lord of the Rings starting at ten pm, and I was sitting all cozy on my couch, knitting my hat, sipping my zinfandel and watching -- I counted carefully.
Sometimes not carefully enough, but I caught things fairly quickly because I'd count carefully several times a round. After all, I was knitting with two colors in patterns like 4A, 3B, 3A, 2B... etc.
But then, the movie ended.
So I was not distracted by pretty elves. I was just knitting. Just one more row.
and I wasn't counting diligently despite that glass of Zinfandel and the late hour.
After 11 pm, Just One More Row is a Bad Idea.
you will not see a picture of this section today -- because I'm tinking again. Clearly, I can't count to 4.
