Today, as I was working on some waist shaping for the THIRD time on my new cardigan, I lamented the non-existence of an "undo" button for knitters. Wouldn't it be ever so convenient to be able to tap a button and instantly have what you just did not only undone, but reversed to what you had done before? I know that sentence is over-complicated, but I think you know what I mean. There are probably knitters and designers out there who almost always get things right the first time, but I'm not one of them. Oh well, apparently even Beethoven worked and re-worked his masterpieces (don't worry, I am NOT comparing anything of my own production to his!) But, when you finally get things right, and today I finally did, it's oh so satisfying.
Hard to know if that would be the case if I had an "undo knitting" button. Is pleasure measured in inverse relation to the ease of achieving it?

Almost every afternoon, as I sit at my computer, I hear piping--bagpiping to be precise. So today, just to be sure I wasn't imagining anything, and to otherwise satisfy my cusiosity, I took a break after that last paragraph and wandered over to the park. Sure enough, this is what I found:

So, now I can really be in the mood for Episode 2 of Outlander!
