Soundtrack to today’s post: “Where is My Mind” by The Pixies
I’m one row away from starting the bottom ribbing on my sweater and so I start looking around for my smaller size 5 needles. (I need to go down 2 needle sizes for the ribbing.) But I can’t find them anywhere. They’re not in my knitting bag or in my needle organizer. They’re not tucked into the couch cushions. They’re not in my car. So I start thinking…. Did I leave them in Chicago? Did I leave them on the plane?
No. Of course not.
I’m knitting with them. And have been since I frogged the thing earlier this week.
The funny thing is (can you hear me laughing???) is that I’m following 2 patterns (since neither of them really work) and Ann Budd‘s suggestion for waist shaping is to just knit 2 inches at the waist with a smaller needle. I originally read that and thought, How lame would that look? Probably better than an entire half of a sweater knit with a smaller needle.
But screw it. At this point, I am NOT frogging again.
Hopefully I’ll be able to show off the finished thing in my next post. And organize a little something for my blogiversary. Thanks for all your kind comments. 🙂
