I have a zit the size of a softball right smack in the middle of my forehead.  It’s taking over my face.  I will need to get a face transplant when this thing blows.

The fact that I have a zit on my forehead makes it that much harder to concentrate on knitting these socks.  It’s kind of like that episode on Family Guy (yes I’m going to go there) when Chris gets the talking pimple on his face.  No, my pimple monster is not talking to me, but it does throb.  I think I’m going to have to cut some bangs to hide this shit.  I miss bangs; they hide nasty zits.

Where was I?  Oh ya, knitting socks.  Entrelac is hard and entrelac socks are even harder.  I even taught myself how to knit backwards so that I wouldn’t have to turn my work.  But even that is not as fast as purling is for me…yet.  I will master the knitting backwards if it’s the last thing I do before my zit explodes.  Also, something is really weird about this yarn.  Even though they’re all from the same company and are the same weight, the white yarn is slightly thinner than the green, so it’s kinda holey.  Not to be confused with “holy”.  That they are not…because I curse a lot when I craft.  Every time I pick up stitches along the selvedge I seem to create large holes.  Does anyone have a solution to this?  Am I picking up stitches wrong?  Will it all even out when I block the socks?  I need to research this matter further….

I’m at the start of the heels now and it’s taking a lot more concentration than my zit will allow me.  Also it’s hard to eat ice cream and knit at the same time.  I need a service dog that will feed me ice cream while I knit.  That would be awesome.  No, I’m not drunk.  I’m just weird and insecure because of the zit.  Please forgive me.
