Well, it seems the high from knitting my nephew’s Flax has come to a plummeting down:
I was working on the left sleeve last Friday and realized it shouldn’t be all garter stitch. There is actually a garter stitch panel just on the top of each arm! Damn it! (Imagine Donkey Kong jumping up and down.) I totally misread the pattern.
I texted a pic to my mum. She said I should redo the jumper because it looked funny. And you know with top-down raglan, everything is connected so that means a full on frogging. Lots of eff’s flew around Friday afternoon.
I took the weekend off to decompress. I will move onto my niece’s Flax to rekindle my holiday knitting mojo. This will make it easier to knit the pattern a third time with a smaller jumper.
Oh well, like the old saying goes: Practice makes perfect.
What experience, any kind, have you had where practice makes perfect?
