YOP #15...and this happened.....

Spring Break...finally!  I have so much to do this week of them is taxes...yep down to the last minute on those...we have been paying in the last couple of years, so I wait to do them.....since we don't have children or own a house, they are actually pretty easy to do..just a couple of hours...then I'll be doing some spring cleaning....I still have a few Santas up in a couple of corners...But I am also going to be crafting..and yesterday I sat down and tried to figure out what was wrong with Rainbow Wings...First wedge, 39 ridges, second wedge 50 ridges, third wedge 30 ridges...yeah...this happened...
I frogged it.....the Hubs said it looked like a mass of colorful spaghetti....but by the end of the night, we were back to here
Actually, I am on couple of rows into the second wedge.....I really want to wear I am hoping to get the majority of it done this week....

I also made a baby hat and started on a second one.  But that was it.....I survived my very busy week and I can't wait to relax this week...beautiful weather, I opened the window for the first time yesterday....hopefully a trip to Northhampton, which will involve a stop at big plans, just cleaning, relaxing and crafting...have a wonderful week all....

It's beautiful here too - I hope you get your lovely relaxing week :-)

Yuck. Taxes. Best of luck to you on that!
Frogging always feels like a dreadful thing, but when you get nearly back to where you started ripping... It doesn't seem so bad. Looking forward to seeing it done!

I hope your rainbow wings works out this time, I love the colour of it. Hope your taxes are done soon and you can enjoy some crafting.

Spring break and good weather - yay! Sorry you had to rip and restart, but sometimes that's the only way. Sounds like you're back on track and are flying through it.

Enjoy your trip, and try not to go too crazy at Webs! That's a lot of temptation!

So glad you have Spring break. The weather here is wet and cold after the storms came through yesterday. My taxes are done and I'm so happy to be getting a refund! I was NOT expecting that but it is much appreciated.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who "frogs"! LOL! But I have learned a lot these past few years and hopefully it will make me a better knitter in the long run. What a beautiful shawl that is turning out to be. The yarn is luscious! I thought it was so pretty in that pile after you frogged it too. Can you just see white bowls lined up with crinkly beautiful "frogged" fibers in them? A new decorating craze?
You're going to Webs? How fun! I have not been to a real yarn shop...ever. I can only order online which I am grateful for. If it wasn't for the internet I probably would never have learned at all. Enjoy your week and I can't wait to see what you get at Webs.
