Because I am a five year old trapped in a nearly 40 year old woman's body I've been begrudging the pattern and the beautiful yarn I've been using on this project so much so it took me over a week to do what needed to be done and that is to wipe the slate clean and begin again.
So goodbye Lorna's Laces Gold Hill.

The STR is medium weight so I have fudged the numbers. I CO 24 stitches, instead of 30. I'm hoping that both numbers being divisible by three and six will help me fudge the heel and leg portions of the pattern.
