Bound Off last night only to Cast On again this morning

I thought I was done with my Mohair Stole. I even laid it out on the dining room table and took a "Before Blocking" picture.

While eating waffles this morning (how happy am I to have a waffle maker again!), I thought about how much I love the stole I made for myself several years ago.
So, I pulled it out and laid it next to the Mohair Stole. It was 15 inches longer! Only then did I try on the Mohair Stole ... (I was too excited last night about finishing it to think about such practical issues).

It's too short.
Mutter ...

So, I ripped out the bind-off row this morning over a cup of strong tea and attached the final skein of yarn. I am still trying to find the courage to change the stole from a completed project back to a WIP in Ravelry.

As I'm still mad at it, I don't plan to pick it back up until tonight's World Series game.

Oh how pretty. I used to like to knit before I started blogging about my dogs and I'm online all the time I'm not at work.

Aww poor Marie! That really stinks. But at least you'll actually use it if it's long enough for you... better to rip back and finish it than to have something that you'll never use! And, I'd leave it as a FO in Ravelry... no need to despirit yourself any more than you already have. *pat on the back*

Oh NOOOO! Oh well, it will be finished soon enough.
Would you believe I forgot about the game last night? Who are you rooting for? We used to go to New Haven Ravens games so we will support Colorado. Boy they got trounced last night, didn't they? Was the game as one sided as the score suggests?

So pretty! Just think of how much you're going to love it when it's done. :)

Dang! Well, it will be beautiful when you finish.
