6 inches and counting
I've only made a little progress on my entry in the Knitting Olympics. I cast on my 151 stitches right at 2:00 PM. Image hosting by Photobucket

Got through the 4 border rows and tried to start the lace & cable pattern. Unfortunately I need to learn how to count (yes me, the math wiz) Instead of 151, I cast on 163 Image hosting by Photobucket so I frogged it and tried again. I swore I cast on 151 this time, even counted it 3 times! Nope, I cast on only 147 Image hosting by Photobucket Dang! Frogged it and tried again. This time instead of counting the actual stitches, I put stitch markers between each pattern repeat. Success!!!! Image hosting by Photobucket

Here's a pic of my progress so far (all 6 inches of it)

Ain't she pretty? I love the traveling vine lace pattern and the cable between really sets it off. (BTW please ignore the stains on the footstool, I got little monsters kids remember?)

Speaking of kids, they had a blast this morning playing in the snow! Yep, we finally got our first snowfall of the year. Most everyone here in dustbunny haven said "It's about time!" but I say "YUCK!!!!" Snowstorm
Besides tricking their mommy into coming outside only to get pelted with 3 snowballs Snowball Fight, the kids built these snowmen.

Before you ask, I have no idea why Princess's has three horns. She couldn't explain that herself.

LOL - the horns are too funny! And I really like the pattern - sorry about the repeated frogging :-(
