Soothing Ripple Re-Do

Happy 4th of July!  We did our celebrating yesterday, because that's what worked best for our family.  It's a good thing, too. because we're having rain today.

So, we're having leftovers, including, hamburgers, chicken & pulled pork sandwiches & hotdogs and leftover anti-pasta salad, too.  This translates to a laid back day for me, which means that I can sit & knit.  Now, that's my idea of a nice holiday.

I was making lots of progress on the second Baby Soothing Ripples afghan when I had discovered a boo-boo.  As much as I tried, I couldn't ignore it. 

So, after some encouragement from a well-respected knitting friend, I ripped out about 40 some rows.  You know, it's a bit of a challenge to rip out and then pick up again a pattern that has yarn-overs it in, but I did it.  Oh, and I discovered that it's a real pain to try and pick up a stitch that is a "Knit 2 tog."  I don't know what the secret is to putting those back the right way when frogging or ripping out.  I'm glad I did it though.  I got to get back to my day off and my knitting.
