I'm actually ahead of schedule (not that I had a schedule I'm just further along than I thought I would be) but I haven't started the cabling and I"ll have less time to knit next week than I do now so I'm taking advantage of the extra time to get as much done as I can in case I don't have time to do anything next week.  I have finished the back and one of the front panels, and I have just started the second one.

Guys, I am so beyond bummed out.  I knitted about 9 inches of my tote,  this was my first attempt knitting in the round & I really did it on my own without any guidance.  So I just realized i twisted my stitches. It was in that screwed up loop....9 inches!!!!!!!!!!  I am SO frustrated.  I just frogged it -which took FOREVER because it's kind of bulky yarn, and I'm giving up for tonight.  Will start tomorrow fresh & hopefully right.  On the up side, I did knit my handles today so those are done no matter what.  WAAAAHHHHH.   Angry

The other good news is that it was going pretty quickly & i work from home tues, wed & thursday so I should be able to get some knitting time in on those days.

i'm 1.5 inches into the first cuff of the first sock, knitted on 0's!  so, as long as i finish the first sock by next friday, and then the next sock by the friday afterward, i will finish with like a day to spare.  and i'm nervous that the socks will be too small. oh god oh god oh god please no

I completely and utterly feel your pain.  I just frogged 3" of the complex Aran raglan I was making for my Mum.  (sigh).  That'll teach me to cast on while sick on NyQuil.  Well, I think we deserve a silver star or something for having the strength to frog  Wink

Progress photo!



Sorry for the crap picture, it's nighttime and my indoor lighting is crap.

I'm about 9 inches up the body, and just finished attaching the kangaroo pocket to the body. I considered skipping it, but figured it would be downright un-Australian to not complete a 'kangaroo' pocket.

I'm enjoying this pattern a lot! I've been checking and re-checking and re-re-checking the chart as I work the cables... I really don't want to have to frog anything!

I've frogged Orangina several times and I'm going to have to again - looks like I missed a couple of yos a couple of rows back.  I'm so annoyed with myself, it's a ridiculously easy pattern and I'm getting it so horribly wrong!

Odessa is very easy.  It took me only 3 days to knit.  I don't know your skill level, but you can use that fact as sort of a guide.

Thanks!  I will start, then!  In the meantime, I've started on a REALLY hard lace sweater.  I might switch to the odessa for now.    Roll Eyes

I think you can still join on the YahooGroups KAL site the link is  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/teamusakal

Yeah, I signed up at the YarnHarlot website and figured I would just knit along anyway, even though I did not receive any kind of response...  Oh well.  I'll try this link, too!  Thanks, box of purls.

I had to frog the aran vest I'm making for my husband not once but twice so far.  The first time I realized I had twisted my cables in the wrong direction (of course this is at the bottom and I already had 4" of it knitted) and not having learned from that mistake I managed to drop a stich while cableing (discovered 3 rows later).   Apparently knitting and sleep deprivation is an ugly combination.  Well.........back to the salt lick.  I swear that vest  is mocking me.

So glad it's not just me.  I started again this morning & I THINK i have it right.  I won't swear to it yet though, don't want to jinx myself.

I am in utter hell. I hatethis pattern. I had cast on only to realize I was supposed  to do a provisional cast on...

Frog, then to realize that for the life of me and all the web resources I could find, I can't do a provisional cast on for beans! I tried knittinghelp, knitty, stitch and bitch (which didn't have it to my utter amazement) and everything I had in my bookshelf (which isn't much) and I still can't do it. After the thousandth try...

...I am ready to throw in the towel. Or knit Picovoli... (Goes to check if Pico needs a provisional cast on)
