It's just happened to me ... I couldn't believe my eyes! So anyway, the mis-counted item in question was my test pattern for my Yarndale Mandala. I love how it looks despite being an oddie; the yarn I used is a 4ply, in autumn colours that I am rather enjoying ... strange with me being a Lucy/Cath Kidston colour palette fan!

As an extra pop of the darker colour, I used a surface chain circle after row 4; also used a big darner threaded with double yarn to stitch into the circle at the centre and out through the dc's in row 2 to create a spiked effect. No pattern for this one, just experimenting with stitches!

May 11 was my birthday and well as Mother's Day (in South Africa); we had a lovely lunch at my daughters home, with friends and family ... just missed my eldest son so much ... he lives in Woking UK! A beautiful bunch of gorgeous pink roses and gymsophila stands on my dining room table, so lovely. Special time, very precious.
Until next time
