Last night I had to face the music and do a bit of unraveling on my sweater. I sailed through the neckband and conquered the short rows. But then I made a big mistake. I didn’t read the instructions thoroughly and instead of one row of M1 increases followed by 10rows of stockinette, I made 4 rows of the increase. Argh! I tried unknitting but missed a few stitched, twisted a few stitches and in the end, decided to frog and start again. Fortunately this was very early in the making so I don’t think it will take me too long to get back on track.
On the reading front, I am really enjoying All Over Creation. Yesterday I got a new book in the mail and tonight I am going to hear Sarah Ballantyne talk about that book. I love all the science behind food and health. And I think I will have just enough time to get my sweater back in the needles so I can take my knitting along.
Happy Wednesday. Be sure to visit Kat today for more unraveling stories.
