Double-Pointed Fingers


I am trying to knit a baby blanket. The pattern is easy. Cast on 5, join in a circle. Move onto 3 double-pointed needles, just like I use to knit socks. Knit one round.  Then increase in each of the stitches. Easy! Ya think?  So how come I ripped the whole thing out 8 times awreddy?

All I want to do is knit this confunnit stupidhead  nani [beautiful] baby blankie for my brother dem’s son.  Oh, yeah, my nephew an his wife. But everytime I try do the increases, somehow my fingers end up all hamajang [mixed up], the stitches on the needos keep falling off, and I am ready to send da whole ting to da frog pond.

I think, “Eh, when did I grow double-pointed fingers?” Cuz that’s what it feels like.  I’ve been knitting for years now. Shouldn’t be this hard.

K’den. Pau [finished] whining.  I am going go try again.  If you hear a scream from around Damascus, Oregon, it’s going to be me.
