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.
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
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

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

It looks beautiful so far! Beautifully soft yarn, beautiful color, beautiful knitting, beautiful pattern! Can't wait to see it progress!
