What's THAT symbol?

I had to share this because I know you’ll all appreciate it.

I was working on a complicated cable chart very late at night last week. At the end of some of the right-side rows there is a kind of curly symbol for ‘wrap & turn’. Fine, no problem.

As I was working along, I noticed another curly symbol at the end of a wrong side row. OK, I had to look up a lot of symbols on these charts, so I went to find that one. Nope. Searched through them all, sure I’d missed it because it was so late and I was so tired.

I put the pattern down in frustration.

I got antsy and wanted to knit some more so I figured I’d give it one more try.

Before I went through the symbol lists again, I decided to look at the pattern to see if I could tell what they wanted me to do. Then it hit me.
The curly symbol was. . . .ready?

A six!! :roflhard: :oops: :roflhard: :oops:

:lol: Way past time to have been in bed wasn’t it?

Way to go, Ingy!!! :cheering:

Ingrid, you’re somethin’ else all together. :rofling:

That’s exactly what I was thinking!

:roflhard: :roflhard:

wiping tears of laughter from my eyes

That’s just priceless Ingrid. Puts a whole new spin on the concept of trusting the pattern! :rofling:

Ingrid needs a hug I think :heart:

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

Priceless… :roflhard: :rofling: :roflhard: And, you are so brave to admit it!!! :rofling: :roflhard: :rofling:

It’s just too :doh: and :rofling: not to share!!!

Plus it’s very encouraging for us that are less skilled to hear that “Ingrid the Great” has :doh: moments too!

Oh Ingrid!! I feel bad laughing, but that story is just tooooo funny!! I’m glad that you were able to figure it out!!!
