So I was feeling good after I fixed my mistake....until I realized that I hadnt put my stitch markers back in. Well you know what...I don't need them!!! I freed myself from stitch markers! Oh yeah I 'm really feeling myself right about now. I'm glad that I ventured out and tried something that looked really intimidating and turned out to be easy. Y'all should give it a try.

It seems that I have contracted a little bit of starteritis again. I have more projects going right now than I care to admit. Let's see - the black and white Liberty blanket. Then there is the mitered blanket I haven't finished. Let's not forget the pink cabled blanket I'm about half way through. Hmmmm...and now I have what ChickenusWingus is describing as a Candy Corn Baby blanket. I laughed when I saw the resemblance - I don't think I'll be adding the white stripe he suggested though. I starting this one because the Liberty blanket was no longer portable. It now needs it own back pack and well just takes up too much room on the train. I mean who wants to look like a bag lady while commuting? Besides, I made a big mistake in it and had to pull it apart. I was just so distraught to watch all of that hard work unraveled!!!!! I made a mistake in one of the lines of the chart and it was just to obvious to leave it. More obvious than the first mistake. I may pull the whole thing apart and start over. The pattern deserves to not have any mistakes in it. So Ms. Liberty is sitting on the sidelines with something else until I can wrap my mind around pulling her apart. *Insert Big Sigh* Such is the life of a knitter. Until then I will be working on my Candy Corn Big Bad Baby Blanket.
I started the entrelac scarf with the Twisted Sisters yarn I bought last weekend. I'm not loving it right now - maybe as the scarf gets longer it will bring me some joy. Right now it's just something to do to pass the time. I however, would not feel bad if I found another pattern and tinked this one. Anyone have any suggestions for another pattern? I would even be willing to try a simple lace pattern for this yarn. It really is pretty.
