progress at last, and one little dropped stitch



FINALLY--i dropped a stitch. one measley stitch when jocelyn is already finished!!! oh well--i am still determined to get through this whole pattern by the 26th! thank goodness the weekend is here! i am loving how this pattern is coming out, although it's definitely a challenge for me. i have had to back up more times than i care to admit. however, i have also learned quite a lot so far. i was even able to fix an accidentally twisted stitch that had occurred about 8 rows before without having to go back--i just backed up to that column of stitches, then kind of unzipped the fabric, fixed it, and zipped it back up. THAT was a first! so--even though i am slow, i am still proud of my progress so far. hopefully this weekend will bring some speed to the games.

It looks great. Don't use me as a gauge (pardon the pun). I was on a mission - much to the dismay of DH, DD and DS. Only decent meal we had this week was Valentine's Day! You're going great, and it looks beautiful.

It's beautiful! Congratulations on the "unzipping."
I've only just started the straight section, so take heart.

Dropping the stitches sure does give you confidence to repair errors down a few rows. Good for you!

Yours looks great. I just noticed the comments section. I wish I would have seen this before, the inspiration was well needed. You asked what was my first choice on colors, it was icehouse, pretty blues and greens. this one is okay, just not my first choice. and i do love how it is knitting. good luck on the rest of yours!
