Sometimes you knit your project…

…and sometimes it knits you.

Exhibit A: The Bird in Hand Mittens [ravelry].

It turns out I am not that much of a Vikings fan. Also, remember this foppish fellow from inauguration day?

Yeah. This project will be frogged in favor of a better less garish different color combination.

Exhibit B: The Sweater of Rassilon [ravelry]:

I finished the ribbing and knit about 5 rounds (over 200 sts) of stockinette stitch before I remembered that I was supposed to increase evenly up to 220 stitches on the first round of stockinette stitch. *sigh*
