Remember that little ring of stitches that I showed you last week? Well, that Left Front turned into this:
Yah! That’s pretty good progress if you ask me! And look, Ma, I even got that pesky pattern to stick in my head this time! You can see the obvious difference when you look at it with the back:
I’m not going back and fixing it, I won’t be able to see it while wearing it, and it should fall underneath the sleeves/arms and well, it’s just way too much work to do it over again. I did eventually contact Lisa and she is going to do her best at making a match to this color, so, I will be buying a couple more skeins from her. I want to thank all of you that commented or contacted me about this, I really appreciated your thoughts and insights. I will work the new skein/skeins into the sleeves and button bands, so hopefully no one will see the difference.
But, I do have another issue that I am consistent with, but I know I am doing something wrong! Can you see in the next picture how the first knit stitch pulls in? The pattern is: Right side: p1, k1 (twisted), p1, k1 (twisted), p1. Wrong side: K1, P3 (twisted), K1. What am I doing to make the first K stitch pull like that? At this point, I’m going to keep going as it is, but, it’s driving me nuts!
Ok, gotta run to meet a friend coming from Bowling Green, so it’s a short one today! OH! But, btw, the Kentucky Fiber Festival was da Bomb!! I am really happy about that and hope it continues to be in Lexington!
