There is nothing on this planet that keeps the ego in check like knitting. I have been working on the February Lady Sweater since the first of the year. My mom got me some Berroco Ultra Alpaca in sweater quantities for my birthday a couple of years ago. When I received my Addi Turbo Interchangeables for Christmas I wanted to do some real luxury knitting.
It has actually been coming along pretty quickly. I have been doing a lot of knitting while catching up on my best movie nominations in preparation for the Academy Awards.
Last night was my knitting group and I was very excited to show off my progress. I pull out my sweater to find….
Well, can you spot the problem?
Yup. That sleeve is inside out. I knitted it into the inside of the sweater.
The lace pattern should look like this.
But instead looks like this.
I will frog with great humility. But that is the great thing about knitting. When you make a mistake, you can fix it by just knitting some more… which is what I like to do in the first place.
