You can see how worn the bottoms had become. In one spot you could see clear through to the other side!

Instead, I decided to brighten your Friday with a little Beckham eye candy.
If that was the official soccer uniform I would be the biggest fan out there people!
OK gotta go wipe the drool....

We even had our very first stitch dropping. I think that is going to be my favorite part. What? Drop stitches on purpose!? Yahooooooooo!
Much progress was also made on Sunday while watching the following movies:
Semi Pro (Don't waste your time)
The Guardian (Mmmmmm Ashton)
Die Hard 20 or what ever number we are up to now (Yippy kay yay...)

Let's get right to the point...I HATE THIS PROJECT!!
I LOVE the yarn! It is Lorna's Laces - Lion and Lamb in the beautiful shade of Watercolor. So far so good. Right?
I LOVE how the colorway is knitting up! Still good. Right?
Here is a progress picture. Still good? Maybe.
Here comes the problem. After doing two repeats a certain knitter might have gotten a little cocky. I am not going to mention any names. Said knitter figured they knew the pattern and could take the "training wheels" off. After several repeats and upon reaching a certain point in the pattern I realized something was wrong. There were too many stitches on one side and I was not where I should have been. Basically if you forget to increase you are screwed!
It was at this time that horror set in and I guess it is safe to say my face looked a little something like this:
I have unknit at least 2 inches and still the stitches are not right. If the yarn wasn't so beautiful not to mention expensive I would have already backed the car over it a few times. Maybe I will take my print out of the pattern and back the car over that. That might make me feel better.
I think it might be time for a Mike's Hard Pomegranate Lemonade. Yes that sounds nice.
Rip or not to rip?...That is the question.

Camp Wannaknitknit 2008 was AMAZING!!
The property was breathtaking as you can see in the pictures.
We all had goodie bags waiting for us in our rooms -- Piddleloop bags, Jelby stitch markers and Red Rocks Fiber Works yarn (in a colorway named Camp WannaKnitKnit).
Stacey organized a craft session at the table on Saturday. We made DPN holders. These cute holders keep your stitches from falling off the ends when your not working on your project. I think it also keeps the needles from poking holes in your bags. Either way they are super cute!
Yeah you can tell I didn't like that craft at all.
I mean I only made how many? Six!
There was lots of knitting time...of course.
There was no shortage of food and drink. We ate like royalty all weekend. To all the ladies who cooked for us...THANK YOU!! I want each and every one of you to come and live with me and spoil me everyday! You girls totally ROCK!
I can't wait to see what 2009 has up it's sleeve for Camp Wannaknitknit.
Thank you ladies!
