Thank you all for the well wishes for Mom. Today was a bad day but hopefully tomorrow will be better. I got a couple of rows done on Icarus, I think I'll keep plugging away at it as is and see what happens. There is 2 inches inbetween the start and first repeat and the pattern states it's about 2 1/2 inches so I think I'll be ok. Maybe i'll have to do 3 repeats more instead of my planned two because of this super fine yarn and size 2 needles, but we'll see.
I always say about ripping, I love to knit, so here I go....knitting again!!
