Whatsa Knitting Me?

This is knitting me...... although mine is knit in a lovely dark blue with shaakdes of blue and green shadows....it calls for 4 skeins of Caron SoftShadows in Soft Merino.

Of course, this ain't the only thing that is knitting me, I have also progressed on Icarus to the point where one can actually see the shawl, and I cast on for this corset top as well, and proceeded to completely destroy the lace pattern in 2 rows. Although I must say that the color used to display the top is HID-E-OUS. I am doing it in a royal blue.

I am now remembering why most of my knitting is mindless knitting, it's because the rugrats make it hard to do anything else.......DOH! The lace pattern on the corset has the chart which is 4 rows....then they pattern tells you to do 3 repeats of the first 2 rows and then 3 repeats of this, and then 3 repeats of that......couldn't they just chart all of it so that you can just follow the chart? The more I have to switch back and forth, the more likely I am to F--- it up. Of course, the fact that Littlest kept running off with the pattern did NOT help.

So I guess I will have to redo the chart for myself. Again.
