After ripping up dishcloth pattern #2 three times (and the last time I was five rows from finished) I am switching to pattern #12 and hoping for better luck. I never used to start over if there was a mistake but this one had a distinct heart pattern that showed the mistakes quite clearly. And I don't know how to pick up dropped stitches in anything outside of plain garter stitch. But I like knitting with this yarn (Sugar and Cream) so it's not a totally awful experience.Special Note to Mrs. Rellim: Your slippers are 3/4 finished. I need to obtain one more skein of yarn for the top (I ran out of the color I was using) and I'm ready to felt.
