Finally finished one side. This is taking me forever even though I'm enjoying it. I cast on the next piece and had to frog back to the cast-on row after about 10 rows because I'd somehow lost 2 stitches. There must be something about those first couple of inches that causes me to make stupid mistakes. Well, that and the glass of wine I'd drunk beforehand...

Well, that and the glass of wine I'd drunk beforehand...

that happens to me all the time....i think to myself...oh, i'll just have a nice glass of wine and relax and knit after a long day.....something wonky always happens (and i usually dont care at the time....so have to fix it the next day! i found i could not work on my orangina at knitting groups b/c there was always distractions...(including wine!)

my orangina is being knit in the round, and i am moments away from the ribbing...but i am right in the middle of an incredibly difficult intense 3-wk chemistry course (ends july 10th!) as a pre-requisite for a grad school program in design i am starting in the fall (don't ask...i dont know why it is so important i take it, either) so knitting is so far on the back burner i could cry.  i work about 4 rows on 1 sock every other day, just so i can see some progress centimeter by centimeter (not even inch by inch.....Sad..i watched 1 episode of sex and the city on demand last night and knit 4 rows.  i dont know what was better...sitting and not thinking for 25 min or those 4 little rows on my sock... )

 i do believe the thinking required for orangina would send me over the edge.

I've been wanting to tackle Orangina for awhile, just need to finish my current project. Everyone's oranginas on this thread look fabulous!
Has anyone tried to use this Orangina kit? The price seems pretty reasonable:

Don't do it!  Buy your own yarn & pattern.  Discountyarnsale.com made a $13 (including shipping) profit off me.   >:(It's way cheaper to buy the pattern from the Glampyre website & get your yarn separately.

i also remember someone buying the kit and having yarn come from different dyelots so there was a huge stripe in her sweater...and the yarn wasn't rowan, either.
