No pictures today because the only “knitting” I’ve done is to rip out my five inches of sweater. So it’s time for a third stab at this thing. I’ve noticed I seem to have to make three attempts at many of my projects before they turn out correctly. I’m not sure if that’s because things suddenly become perfect after two failures, or if my tolerance for ripping and restarting simple hits a wall and prevents a fourth try. Probably some combination of the two.
At any rate, in this instance, although I’m annoyed about having lost all that knitting, I think the ripping is ultimately going to be a good thing. Not only should I wind up with a better fitting sweater, but I wasn’t totally happy with the way the waist decreases were working out, so I’ll be trying something different with those as well.
