not me personally - the weather outside.

I've been working on a Kreinik blackwork freebie. Stupid pattern has mistakes. But it's been so long since I've done any blackwork, I didn't see them until I'd already stitched them. I hate negative progress. How hard can it be to proofread a blackwork pattern? Follow the lines. Oh.
So I started following the lines, and sure enough there was another mistake, too. At least I found that one before I stitched it.

All is quiet here as the college kid keeps vampire hours. She doesn't sleep excessively, just till noon. Because she stays up till 4:00 a.m.

You know, it is funny. I don't knit (or crochet, although I once learned, but concentrated so hard on what I was doing, I had bullets of sweat all over my head by the time I did one square), but my DW had me inputting patterns for her (Ssshhhh, don't tell anybody) and I could spot mistakes. I have a good brain for pattern recognition, and some of the repeats just weren't matching up to what I knew they had to be. Strange, isn't it?
