Just in the nick of time...

Or so I went to bed thinking this morning!! I have spent the last two weeks trying to motivate myself into working on this throw for Mark's birthday, because oh you know, he needed another one to go with the half dozen other afghans I've made him over the years!

Finally after staying up until noon-thirty today to get that last strip finished - for the second time... Washed, dried and ready to wrap for his birthday today! Then I woke up!
Took this picture and realized....$#@*!!!! I screwed it up again!!!!

Oh yes, see how those squares very nicely show an diagonal pattern? Then BAM, slam on the brakes...what the hell happened there!!! AGAIN! Oh yah, twice, not once but twice, I miss ordered the pattern!

Grrrr!! Well you know what they say about best laid plans and all that. Of course, It is now 7:30 pm, I have to work tonite (almost had to work a twelver on very little sleep- thank you Jason), and no time to fix it to take it over to the birthday boy tonite before I leave for work.

No I am not going to give it to him that way....oh horrors! I will just have to give it to him late and fix it tomorrow...or maybe the next day, now that I blew it, whats the hurry...right?



I do have that Bakers Square pumpkin pie for him ( his fav), and a rude birthday card to give him. I guess this is my karmic payback for gloating last Friday after having won $260 buckeroos at the casino (his b-day party) when he lost.

Oh well, off to work I go to sulk over it all night.
