Knit, Inc


Posted on: December 15, 2010


I finished the sleeves of the square dance jumper and joined them to the body. I painstainkingly counted the stitches to make sure they were evenly balanced. Or so I thought…

Fail. I have 50 more stitches on the front than the back. AAAAAH.
I’ve knit about an inch of 330 stitches that I now have to rip back. AAAAAH.
I’ll have to make sure I don’t drop any stitches and get the sleeves back onto the other needles to join them again. AAAAAH.
I have a week to get this finished. AAAAAH.

I think a stiff drink is in order.

Oops, I almost forgot to mention, the hospice craft sale was on last weekend, and they raised €5,500! Well done to all involved!

Oh no!!!A stiff drink, yes, but wait until you sober up to finish the sweater.That was some sale for hospice, well done!

It looks like it is coming along fine…hang in there….knit through all crises. :)-Lou

I'm betting a Jemmy or two were consumed last night!

Your jumper is looking good. It will work out fine, you'll see. 🙂
