30 days of thankful #13

I am thankful that I have finally turned the corner on adjusting to the time change. Honestly, this has been the hardest time for me. Hoping the adjustment sticks.

I did have some intentional unraveling this week. Pictured above is the hem of my Stopover. This was my first bottom up sweater I made and it was just a bit too short. I tried blocking it but the yarn is quite springy. I finally went in and began to unravel the hem. I will add an inch more of the gray and then do a slightly longer ribbed edging. It was harder to unravel because of the bottom up construction but I managed to get the right number of stitches picked up. Now I need about 30 minutes of good light to get those first rows done and I’m on my way. I also unraveled the neckline and will do an i-cord bind off so it isn’t snug on my neck.

Linking up with Kat today. Be sure to visit her for more tales of unraveling.

  1. Love the colors of your Stopover. I have that pattern and have been toying with it…but I may try to do it top down. I need to think about it.

  2. Congrats on overcoming the unraveling and getting the right # stitches on the needle. Glad you are adjusting better this time to the time change!
    Cheers ~

  3. I bet you will be much happier with a little longer sweater. Great fix for such pretty yarns. I have a sweater I never wear and you’ve inspired me to figure out another way to use the yarn. I have always loved the color so I may unravel the whole thing and knit it into something else. – I think this is a January project though.

  4. I’m quite impressed that you decided to fix the too-short sweater … and picked out the bottom-up edge to do it! (also that you are almost to the halfway point of daily blogging this month 🙂
