Je suis encore un dork

I spent a large part of my day yesterday casting on for Ene's Scarf. 375 stitches. I knit the first row and ended up with exactly the right number of stitches. A miracle. I took a photo of my work to document it's miraculousness. Then I looked at the pattern.

Hmmm...that left half of chart 1 isn't looking too familiar.

Wow, most of the right half doesn't ring a bell either.

Yes, I had knit the right border then the center right repeat all the way to end of the chart. So the real miracle was that I had the right number of stitches to knit the pattern entirely wrong! What are the odds?

I did finally sort it out and knit the first 4 rows. But where's the fun in that.

Dorkily yours,
