For those of you who got the pattern for being an attendee of the retreat, I will be happy to gift you a copy through ravelry so you may have it in your library and have a digital version of it. Just send me a pm on Ravelry. Also, thanks to Joe (aka Olddancer) we've got our first bit of errata. Next to the instep chart instructions it says:
"For each row, you will first work across all 19 sts of entire chart, then work *16* sts of repeat only." It should read "15 sts of repeat only", not 16. I don't know how it was missed, but it was inevitable and if that's the only error I will be elated (surprised and elated). The error has been fixed on the downloadable PDF from Ravelry.
For those of you who haven't read my comment on my original post about the pattern, I ended my stubborn butt IN the hospital as a patient. No big deal. I had a tooth abscess that infected my lymph nodes and parotid gland under my left mandible. Thinking I could take care of it with some on hand antibiotics from home and delaying proper treatment, I nearly bought myself a tracheostomy. Luckily I caught it in time, but have to receive IV antibiotics and steroids. So, the nurse will now have to become the patient. URGHHH! I couldn't lay here idly in bed (even with good pain meds), so I'm using the time wisely by uploading the pattern and starting a football baby cocoon for my Uncle's new grand-baby. (",)
