Is your sweater cursed?
Had to take a week off of knitting due to the painful neck cramp. There were good books to read so my knitting ban could have been worse. Since then I've been knitting on the somewhat cowl which I now believe is cursed. (Can you knit the devil into it or does he just have one of his minions show up late night to lay a curse on it). In just this weekend I've unraveled several days of work and then realized that everything I knit last night was in the wrong needle size. I feel like throwing it into a dark closet corner never to be seen again. Part of me thinks if I press on that the sweater will turn out wearable the other part thinks I should stop now before I make more mistakes. What I need is a "Is your sweater cursed?" test.

Tell the neighbors you are helping your kids with their campfire badges, then smile and offer them some s-mores.
