r is for









ru-ro.











see anything wrong in these photos?


well, i'm nothing if not consistent ;-)

it's bloody row 27 on marina's chart. i made the same mistake on the first 2 full pattern repeats. i also made the mistake on the 3rd pattern repeat, but caught myself. that's when i looked below. ru-ro.

am currently ruminating my options.

a. leave it alone not a chance in hell.

b. duplicate stitch

c. surgery similar to the donegal changing color solution scroll down to nov.12th, only this time more of a pain in the rump, as i would have to change 2 colors....

further reflection required...

remember the photo of our poor 2 dead pine trees?

yesterday they were cut down. then our friend bobby hauled them away on a huge flatbead to a saw mill in zolfo springs to be made into boards. i am very happy the wood will be used.


bobby and his brother jack are 5th generation floridian. their family, the scarboroughs, have been here in central florida since before the war of northern aggression. his grandfather never paid more than 25 cents an acre for any of his land. can you imagine!


bobby is a huge cattle rancher and farmer, and has been incredibly helpful to tom on our ranch. i love listening to him tell tales from when he was a little boy. his family drove cattle across central florida over to sanibel island, then into the gulf of mexico onto boats waiting to take the cattle to cuba. at the time, they would camp on the beach, and there was not one single building on all sanibel island. Incredible!

saturday morning sky for sandy.

I would leave it, make a note in your pattern, and continue to do the same going forward. Looks good and it will make it your own.

Are you trying to take away my award for "the most AR knitter"?

I don't see it from here and I should know which is line 27! My problem was 36 & I didn't learn to do it correctly till the sleeves.

oh dear, a ru-ro row...leave it alone for a day or two- until you decide if you can live with it...or not! Glad your trees went to the mill...

I completely agree with Nicole. Leave it and keep making the same mistake. It's really purdy! No one will ever notice.

Cool story about the cattle; I must tell it to my little cowboys. :)
