%$@^%!

Don't you just love it when you go to your LYS and buy a bunch of yarn for a new project and then come home and have your man not argue too much about helping you wind the new yarn into balls, and then you cast on 160 stitches very carefully onto your size 10.5 circular needles (since you didn't feel like buying 11s) ,and then you knit those 160 stitches in the round, for oh, 6 or 7 rows before discovering you're making a mobius strip instead of your Felted Bag with Fair Isle Skulls?

Don't you just love that?

EEK! Lisa that sucks! I'm sorry to hear that you got off to a bad start! I will be starting mine tomorrow (I forgot to get bigger circ's - all of mine are 16's).

Although as I was reading this my husband said "hmmm a knitted mobius strip, that's cool". He's a math geek.

Hopefully you will get a fresh start today. What colors did you choose?
