suck-o-rama

I told you I have been knitting again. This year has been a slow one on the knitting front. I had other things going on keeping me occupied, but now my time is once again my own and I have taken to the needles. Unfortunately I don't think I will have time to get Christmas knitting done, especially since I have now decided I need a scarf for our Ohio trip. It is likely to be cold in Ohio on Halloween, right?
So, I found a scarf pattern I liked and started working on it last night. This morning I realized the section I thought was the contrasting color is actually the main color which means I casted on with the wrong color. Initially I decided to just go with it. After about 1/2 a round I decided not to go with it and ripped it all out. Back to casting on. . . all 400 stitches!!
Oh and the red isn't the right color red but it is a pretty red so it is staying.

12 people are laughing with me:

That would make me want to cry. YarnHarlot had a story about casting on an almost infinite number of stitches many, many times!

I can't wait to see it finished---you're such a talented knitter.
