I'm off to a pretty good start ...
After I took the photo, I totally did a Homer Simpson
I was so into the movie I was watching, that I switched the MC and CC stripe pattern - instead of 3 CC, 5MC, 3 CC, I did 5CC, 3 MC, 5 MC.
I'll probably regret this in the end, but will not frog it, but keep going. I think I'll do 12 more with the correct pattern, then end with the botched one, so at least the ends of the scarf will match!
