cast on and knitting!

I cast on today and am working on my first basketweave repeat. This is taking forever! I don't know if it's the yarn (fino alpaca with a twist), the needles (inox), or the pattern, but I can't remember ever knitting so slowly! Hopefully it will go faster as I memorize the pattern. It's a very pretty pattern, glad I decided to join in!

I'm using markers between each repeat as well as to mark the three stitch edge. Still, now and then I find I've made a mistake with the stitch count and have to tink. I'm not sure why, what I'm doing, but I hope it stops soon!
