I am currently working on this project as well, I am hoping that by weekend'd end I have finsih the hat or the scarf lol!
I just had to tell SOMEONE!!!
When the computer was on the blink and I thought I lost everything, what did I do to calm my nerves? I cast on and just started knitting!
It looks like Wal Mart, at least the one here, doesn't want the knitter's business any more.
