I went to a cast-on party at Knitter’s Mercantile, my LYS, but was so busy packing for vacation that I didn’t have a chance to post about it right away. How lovely to meet the people on my team! I’m attacking my sweater back with a renewed sense of purpose.
By the end of the hour-and-a-half that I spent at the cast-on party, I had 16 rows done, mostly ribbing. During yesterday’s drive, I worked a good two inches of stockinette – but had to rip it all out. I had started the wrong size.
Yes, it was silly of me. But, to be fair, I am in between sizes on this one, and thought that the larger size was the way to go. Apparently not. So I started up again today (I didn’t have the heart to work on it much after the ripping action), and am almost to the end of the ribbing. Phew! But I lost way too much time to remain competitive.
Oh, well. In the competition I will stay.
