So I've been plugging along on the scarf/shawl and got tons done on our ride to Massachusetts this weekend. Here is a shot from in the car...
Here is my cast on for the tail. First, I did a backward loop (thumb or "e" cast on) but it just didn't give a nice edge since I had to cast on 72 sts. So, I ended up doing a cable cast on.
Here are a couple more pics:

Looks good so far, right? Well, guess what... I was cranking out the rows on the 6 hr. ride home and guess what happened?! Check it out:
Can you see what I did? Four garter stitch rows in the middle of yarn over rows! Here's a closer look:
And here is even closer:
How the heck do you fix that, you ask? You have to tink..... eight rows of tinking 300+ stitches!!! I was not happy... I couldn't believe I did it and then really couldn't believe it took me so long to notice I did it!!! Ugh!!!
Well, I am happy to report that I tinked and am moving along again.... it just will not be done for this Friday. Oh well... maybe next week... until then, visit Tami for some more WIPW posts!
