I went to Eugene to buy some pretty, slate blue cashmere for a cable sweater for Darling. (This was in September). I’ve had as much as 18 inches of the back done before I noticed a large glaring error, so I ripped it out.
I have a hard time casting on and getting the beginning ribbing done….so I did that for about three months.
Then I went to a conference…prime knitting time! However, about 12 inches into the back, I noticed that somehow, I had
a)miscounted in almost every row
b)must have read the pattern in a language other than k and p
c)managed to drop stitches hither and yon
So I ripped that out.
So it is now almost the end of February. I spent THE ENTIRE WEEK getting 1 1/2 inches of even ribbing completed (no dropped stitches) and THREE PATTERN ROWS done.
Be still my beating heart. I think the hardest part is over.
