While I was knitting the second half of the back to my mabel dress I realized that I forgot to knit the first stitch of every purl row...I guess it is going to make the edge look nicer, after its blocked I assume. I was pretty upset but luckily Amy has shown me how to rip out stitches and already have the needle where you need it to be. As you can see above it was more than just a few rows that needed to be corrected, needless to say I was bummin. Here I thought I was going to be done with the back of the dress that night, but no me and my horrible memory had to kick in.

here is a bigger picture of it.

oh well that was two nights ago... Now I'm finished with that and have a little more than an inch done on the front panel. I'm pretty happy with my progress so far. I'm thinking I'll be done with it completely in a week or so. Give or take a couple of days. We'll see.

Last night was knitting night! I love going knitting! My hubby had off so I left both the kids with him. I felt a little guilty leaving Leah but I have been pumping and had extra milk in the freezer. Who better to leave her with than her daddy?! It was really nice not to have to worry about her and be free to knit and socialize all by myself. Is that bad?! a mom needs her time too, right? In any case I had a good time out at the shop... I love it there! Down the road I hope to own a place like that. a girl can dream, can't she? :)

Oh I almost forgot... I got some sock yarn... And a book, so I can make them into socks;) I'm excited! I've almost been knitting for a year and haven't made one sock. Isn't that horrible?! I feel its my knitting duty to make a pair. Here's the thing... I need to use size 2 needles but that's what my dress is on. I guess I'll just have to finish the dress as fast as I can so I can start my socks. Hopefully this is as complicated as life can get :)

One more thing. I also bought At Knit's End, by stehanie, the yarn harlot. Its too funny! I'm loving it so far! I'll end on that note... happy knitting!
