.[Red Riding Hood].

With Halloween 'fastly' approaching, I am freaking out.
I worked on the hood today after not having worked on it for a few days because of a big mishap. I still kind of consider myself a new knitter, I haven't knitted too many different things. I have never increased until... Last month.. I've only knitted scarves and hats. I am nearly deathly afraid of trying socks.. The lingo is so confusing to me I just don't get it.. BUT! Getting back to the Red Riding Hood. As I have said in the Halloween entitled post, we went with the more simple pattern. I read it wrong, or didn't get what I was reading and, long story short I ended up ripping out about two rows and getting very frustrated because ripping out knitting isn't all cheese and sprinkles. I managed to rip out two rows and only two rows AND somehow get every stitch (save for one) back on my circular. The one dropped a few rows but luckily I was able to pick it up fine. After a long ordeal of having to knit 1 then knit2together BUT having to turn the stitches so they were facing the right way, I decided that if I do this pattern again... Big if there... IF I do it again. Some notes need to be made on it. I've got two purl rows on my knit side, and I am following the damn directions and when I look at the picture on the pattern I do not see these purl rows. I hope this thing turns out.

Anyway, rant rant rant rant, done. I am hoping that the purl rows will be fine... Then again it is for trick or treating so it will be in the dark.... BUT! All I have left to do is the hood. The cape part is done. Woop Woop.
