win some or learn some

My Tile Stitch washcloth is more than halfway complete but the last several repeats have been tough slogging. This has to be one of the most painfully dull knits ever! Some knits I can't wait to finish because I can't wait to see the finished product. In this case I just can't wait to get it off the needles. The next washcloth will be more interesting; it's horseshoe lace in chocolate brown. And then my set of four will be complete.

As much as I like this Oats colourway, this particular skein has been a disappointment - a couple of knots, lots of vegetable matter and decidedly more splitty than the first two skeins. To add insult to injury, the cat has also taken a dislike to this yarn. If I put my knitting down and turn away, she wastes no time in pulling the skein apart and spreading it across the living room.

Oh well, enough with the complaints. As Jason Mraz sings " ... nothing's gonna stop me but divine intervention; I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some."

What a discerning pussy cat. You'll have to take him with you next time you buy yarn.
I quite like the offending wash cloth.

Thanks for the music suggestion - I enjoyed it very much.
All I have to say about the washcloth is: "just suck it up, and be grateful that you have so much time to knit!"
I started a "half-hour hat" with my super chunk 2 days ago and it's still not finished! Need I say more?
