    Gigi: Meadowlands #11 : ball of yarn fell apart. Horrendous yarn barf.  Next meadowlands is going in a ziplock bag, with one end going around, and the center pull section through a snipped hole in the bottom of the bag .

    Gigi: picked up too many stitches for G heel flap.  It annoyed me, it didn’t want to get done . Ripped back, picked up the correct amount of stitches, back in business. Not annoyed at it anymore 

    Gigi: jelly roll socks :arch ribbing. Missed changing colors at one spot. 

    Lazer sheep sparkle yarn. Decided to frog it, will knit it on size 1 needles 

    Jasmin: Made one sleeve with the correct math. Made the second sleeve doing the reverse (not paying attention to the directions), and it was huuuuuuuge. Ripped, reknit.
