Complaints against said pattern include possible attempt to mangle the brain of a tired mommy over 10 days time, along with a remarkable effort to maim a pristine skein of Handmaiden Seasilk through tinking (knit - unknit, knit - unknit.) To add to the list of greviences, the pattern had also taken away the joy of knitting with the Seasilk -- a crime that could not be forgiven.
The knitter holds no resentment towards the pattern or the designer, and even dreams of someday knitting it again... but for now, the yarn has been given new hope, being born anew into the Moonlight Sonata Shawl (Rav. link). The first pattern repeat has been completed, and all things appear to be as they should. Prognosis: hopeful.
