That's the sound of the baby blanket being ripped back to one. The pattern was definitely incorrect and I think I sure have used circs instead of straights. The blanket turned out the right size but the pattern was all wrong. The basket weaves were off and just weird looking. So back to the beginning. I am not going to stick to the deadline. First of all, we don't know when we're going to go down there now. or is it up there.. Well, either direction it is.. School is throwing a wrench in plans. I really can't miss a shitload of school or else I am going to be to far behind. As it is I am going to miss a class for Rock 'n' Shock. Then the next weekend, would be going to see her. Two missed classes in a row and I'll be so far behind I'll go cross eyed. So it's been moved back. I figured, I'll get done with it around her due date which is mid-November.

In other news, I am going to cast on the Ravenclaw bag tonight. I ordered the last little things to go in it and now all that's left is the bag. It shouldn't take me too long when I start working on it. Then SKC is doing a knit along with Pattern one! So, number 1 is my choice. If I have any problems I can get people to help me along the way!

Today has also been a sad day. I watched the final episode of Deadwood. No more shall I be blessed by the obscenities and blood shed that only Al Swearengen could provide. Le Sigh.


Pictures to be posted soon!

    I hate when a pattern is wrong. I just started watching Deadwood last night. Got Season 1's first two episodes down. So far so good, you got me watching it in a way, since you talked about it so often :)

    Travis and I are HUGE Sweaarengen fans and are trying to watch every other thing with him in it. So far so good. Netflix the first season of Dexter and you'll get hooked on that too. It's good stuff. I'm glad you liked Deadwood. We were so sad it was over. I hope you are doing well babe. Have fun on your trip!
