I realize, with much chagrin, that I am becoming one of those once-a-month-or-so bloggers around here. I have never been busier with work or school, and it’s all coming to a head as I finish my second thesis (and with it, two master’s degrees) this semester. I haven’t had much time to knit, let alone think or breathe, and as such, my projects languish.
I discovered a huge error that I made in my Sunshine sweater, which necessitated frogging the entire thing and starting over. I’d just split off for the sleeves and was working my way down the body when the math wasn’t really adding up. I was supposed to have fewer stitches on the front than the back, yet I had many more. I asked the Obscuriosity KAL group on Ravelry for help, and the designer figured out that instead of increasing at the beginning and end of a RS row just two times (as is clearly indicated in the pattern), I kept doing so on every RS row, all the way along. Obviously this created many additional stitches and the wrong shape to my neckline, whoops.
I also just plain ran out of February to finish the January Sockdown challenge socks I was knitting (my pink ones). I have not yet turned the heel on the second sock, though I do love the way the first finished sock looks. I expect to have those done sometime soon.
And no, I have not touched the pile of my now long, long overdue Christmas knits, nor did I write down the modifications I made to one item that is part of what must be a matching pair.
I am very much looking forward to organizing my projects and having a big finishing party, but I fear that day is much further away than I’d like. Ah well, one stitch at a time!
