OH no!!!!

ALL of my hooks are gone! My hooks, my stitch markers, my needles. . .I'm about to have a stroke!

I had my little case in my project bag. . . and when i got home, the yarn was there but my hook case was gone!

I hate this--some of my stitch markers were gifts and very pretty. . .my bamboo hooks, my steel hooks. . .all have to be replaced.

I'm just SICK.

I hate hexagons

Isn't that pretty? It's SuperMonkey's ( ) Patchwork Throw.
I thought it was just gorgeous. So, I went out and bought this gorgeous yarn--Caron's county- and got to work.
Well, I've never done hexagons before. And you know what? I may never do hexagons again. I don't think I have ever been so frustrated with a project in my life! (I take that back--my mis-adventures crocheting with thread. . . ).
First try--didn't have enough stitches so the whole thing curled up like a hexagonal bowl. Then I got the bright idea to add and extra chain in the corners. WRONG. Finally read and re-read the pattern again. And voila--made one right!
Tonight, thought I'd try it again. After all, this will be the first afghan I actually make for ME. after I finish up a project for someone else, then I'll work on mine for a bit before going to bed. big mistake. As the frustration factor rises, the sleepiness factor slips away. . . .
Tonight's problem? I made two motifs. . . and then notice that they were PENTAGONS, not hexagons. ARGH!!!
Frogging it AGAIN and starting over. I am determined to make this. . . I have made much more difficult patterns than this!
But the pattern calls for 295 of these things. . . pity me!!!!!
