It’s going… not great.
Last night, I managed to get to just under the armpits. The big cable down the front is turning out gorgeous. I love the way each column of stitches peels off, weaves through the other columns, then joins back together. I even managed to figure out the changes to the neckline. I brought in the sides and raised the back of the neck slightly. I’ll have to wait to see how it looks with the collar added, but I feel pretty confident about it.
I wanted to add a cable down the back of the sweater, but instead of actually working the cable as I went, like a smart person, I kind of forgot about it until late last night. So, like the genius I am, I dropped the six stitches I planned on using for the cable, and ripped almost all the way back to the cast-on, and started knitting them back up, cabling as I went.(Full disclosure: my husband made me a very tasty tropical drink after dinner last night, which could have been the source of last night’s excessive confidence as I ripped back these stitches.)
In the bright light of morning, I have some regrets with regard of how I’ve been going about this project. But, I’ve got a hot cup of coffee and I’ve got my fingers crossed, so I should be able to fix the mayhem that “Last Night Allison” created.
Have you ever sat down with your knitting, only to realize you did something really dumb the night before? What did you do, and were you able to fix it?
