The weather is sensing the end of summer, I think. It's not that much cooler, but the rains and storms are more frequent. The aches and pains they bring with them make me grumpy sometimes.
Another grump-making thing; I have run into a snag with the pattern I'm building for the September 1st submission. I made a chart using an Open Office spreadsheet, and after indicating grid lines are to be printed, I was able to copy and paste into an adobe photo shop document with grid lines intact. Voila, a chart.
The first time.
I spied a numerical mistake and went back to fix it, and now, no matter what I do, the grid lines will not print. I think I saved it as an excel file after the first image was created, and ruined the core graphics file. Back to the drawing board. At least I had only one of the charts done. And the knitting bit has only one more part to test and the non-graphics part of the pattern is finished.
The big problem is I think I can make the image on that first chart better, and I've already knit a sample. If I redo the image bit and not just the number bit, it would mean today was essentially wasted, Otterwise Designs-wise. Of course if I don't do the best job I can and remake it from scratch, that pattern would forever bug me.
So now that I've shared my depression, here's a picture to cheer us up:
