it happened. i got cocky. i knit and i knit and i knit and i didn't put in lifelines... and i screwed up... fortunately i was able to rip back only one repeat on one half of the scarf ad salvage it. i have noidea how i got the stitches back on the needles. but i did it. whew. ok. back to knitting. 5 more repeats. on two sides. thats 50 rows each side. and i'm done. i can dot it! i think i can i think i can...unles the sock wars pattern gets posted and then the scarf goes on to stitch holders cause i'm gonna need those needles for socks!!!
edit. i was waiting til the camera batteries charged to take a photo to post with the above and welll...i kinda got carried away knitting on my scarf. see first i realized how little yarn i had left. there wasnt even a whole pattern repeat there i just knew it.
and before i knew it the edge was cast off. my needles lying off to the side ignored...
the pattern useless i was done with it.
the sock tote i've been using for a month to keep the scarf safe...empty
the next thing i knew the waste yarn i so carefully cast on with was alone lying on the arm of the couch
you know what that means.
thats a finished scarf. kinda looks like crumbled spider webs eh?
but fear not the scarf is blocking. its doubled over since my blocking board is only 48 inches wide. i will reveal the finihed (dry) product as soon as i can.
whew. it's finished at last, and i can hardly believe it! my first lace. done. and not a moment too soon. i was really getting tired of ths pattern ;) but i love how it turned out.
