Getting My Bearings

Now that the Waving Lace socks are done I had to take a long look around to figure out what to work on. I put the Candy Sam back in my purse and got a lot done on it today. I'm steadily working my way up the right front. I really want to get this one done. There's probably only a week's worth of work left to it. Who knows how long it will actually take. I also started the second sock for the Six Sox Knitalong. I cast on with the Weaver's Wool Quarters in Red-Tail Hawk like I had planned. No photo yet but imagine one and half inches of brownish-reddish k2 p2 ribbing.

Between Sam and the sock I reached my limit on k2 p2 ribbing for the day. I picked up Mon Petit Chou. Oh mon dieu! I knit two rows. So far, so good. Then I could not get row 13 to work out. I counted, I recounted. I made Wes turn off the TV and count along with me. There was a lot of muttering and cursing. I still have not figured it out. My guess is that I missed some yarn overs. But where? This is not one of the those simple, regular lace patterns where one can easily see where a yarn over should be. Amy suggested that I chart the pattern. But have you looked at the pattern? It would probably take me longer to figure out how to chart it than it will take me to figure out how to knit it. The thirteen rows I've done so far look great though.
