Finish one project, jump right into another…
I got sixteen rows into a new project last night, as pictured above. This morning I got through row 26 and my stitch count was off. First I carefully looked over the pattern and charted off a few rows just to verify the pattern was correct. (It is a relatively new upload to Ravelry the best I can tell, and there are only a handful of projects set up for it none of which are finished except the designer’s and she noted it has not been tested.) Once I determined the pattern had no errors to that point I started knitting back to undo one row at a time till I reached a point where the stitch count was correct. My mistake seemed to happen at some point in row 25. Which was nice because I didn’t have to undo much. Upon restarting row 25 I discovered when I was knitting back I somehow goofed a few stitches around somehow and I am still trying to sort it out. I don’t have the house to myself at the moment which means I don’t have quiet, and when I am trying to sort out knitting mistakes I need quiet. You can talk to me while I am knitting if what I am knitting is not too involved, but if I am trying to figure out and fix a mistake I need you to shut up lol.
I have yet to get a ball winder. I know I haven’t reviewed my swift yet, I’d like to wait till I have had a chance to use it with a winder. Hopefully soon.
As a totally unrelated note: Does anyone know of a good (aka reputable) place to buy a bottle of Acqua Di Gio men’s cologne? (Don’t ask.) The cheapest I have found is fragrancenet(dot)com but even they are a bit out of my budget for right now.
