yea....I had one of those mornings.
After reading Pammy Sue's post about doing a Crochet Along, I jumped at the opportunity to 1. join :-) 2. challenge myself with a new pattern and 3. actually finish a Crochet Along for a larger project (for once!) When I got home from work last night, I got my chores done as quickly as possible so that I could ask my color consultant (aka Jonathan) about what yarn I should use, post a picture of my choices on Flickr and GET STARTED! I only got about 3 rounds in last night (of course by now it was about 9:30 p.m.) before the pattern was no longer making sense. I opted to stop while I was ahead and just get up early this morning and crochet before work, vs. finding out I had rounds and rounds of work to frog in the daylight hours.....
I got up at 5, got ready for work and had 1 full hour to crochet before I had to leave my warm apartment and drive to work. About 5 minutes before I had to stop crocheting, right around when I started really feeling proud of myself for tackling a pattern that's more difficult to follow that anything I've ever started (and actually completed) in the past, I found my mistake. At each point I was doing a fptr into the fptr from the previous post. After re-reading (or maybe maybe just reading in it's entirety for the first time) I saw that the pattern states "fptr AROUND the previous fptr" DAMN.IT No wonder I was missing the ribbing.....
If anyone is curious about what yarn exactly that I'm using:
Bernat Berella - Soft Heather
Loops & Threads Impeccable - Sea Green
Vanna's Choice Baby - White (Angel)
The pattern also calls for an "H" hook, but I'm using an "I" hook as I crochet a little tightly and don't want the finished product to be too stiff.
Marie Anne - not sure why but I can't get your link to properly load onto my site anymore!! Last week the link showed up when I copied and pasted (vs. the picture) so this week I just copied the image...of course this means it doesn't link back to your site. If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!
