Mia Can't Count

I frogged the second Fetching because I so cleverly cast on the wrong number of stitches. My cast-on logic must have been, "If there are fewer stitches, I'll get done sooner!" It made sense at the time **head scratching**. Good thing I'm not too far along.

I'm making progress on the Funky Tank Top. The front and back are done and sewn up:
I have to do the neck and armbands now. The colors are growing on me, even the creepy puke green. I hope it looks ok to my cousin too, or Jersey Baby might never get to wear it.

The alpaca scarf is halfway there. It's just stocking stitch with a garter stitch border, so I'll spare you the new photo. I just started ball 3 of 4. The pattern only calls for 3 balls, but the scarf looks so short in the picture. Plus, I had four balls in my stash anyway, so why not go long?

For this long weekend, I have resolved to do the following:

1. Finish the Endless Afghan from (gasp!) two years ago. I've decided to call it quits with the lace part and knit the garter stitch border. It's plenty long enough as it is anyway.

2. Fix Icarus (remember Icarus??). I seem to mess up more and more the closer I get to the end.

I can't believe how quickly the tank has come along.....I still have a tank that's been almost done for.....dare I say it.......5 or 6 years (I'm so embarassed!!!!) (I just have one shoulder area to finish....and then to sew it all together.....)

That is so cool looking. We just returned from vacation. Have been wahing clothes LOL. How is it that the clothes you take on vacation MULTIPLY 2 fold when you return? LOL. I started a pair of socks while on our trip and am down to the toe on the first one. I got a little of the Bumble Bee Shawl done. Didn't get the Mystery Stole finished like I wanted, but anyway. I just have the edging and blocking to finish it.
