Olympic Blanket Crisis

Well, I completed 62 rows (around 9 inches) of the baby blanket without error!

But on row 63, things turned ugly. I knitted row 63, 64, & 65 and then it became painfully obvious that I had gone off pattern. Actually, I believe I knitted the same row twice and this threw the pattern way off.


TERROR! PANIC!!

I know! I'll call on Cheri- the owner of The Naked Sheep Knit Shop. Now I have to add an aside about Cheri here. Not only is she an incredible knitter. She is a fabulous business owner. Cheri remembers my name each time I come to her store. AND she knows who I am over the phone! She always makes time for me and my knitting questions. I'm sure you know what a rare and wonderful treat it is to be a recognized customer. Her store is quite a drive away from my home but it's definately worth it.
Here is a picture of my knitting angel:


Anyway, I digress from Knitting Terror. Cheri calmly ripped my three rows and helped me figure out where I was in my pattern.
RELIEF! DELIEVERANCE!

I'm back on track and have the new rows correctly knitted.


I'll write more about my progress but now I need to watch the Women's Downhill on the Olympics.
