Read the instructions

20130430-085002.jpg

Whoever said it was important to read instructions completely, circling all of the instructions that refer to your size? Me? Nah, because obviously I don’t practice what I preach. It’s disheartening to get to the end of the project and realize the lace pattern is four rows off because of one little sentence.

“For sizes S, L, and 2x: Work Rows 1-4 once.”

Ugh! I didn’t do that because the length was long enough, not thinking the reason the designer did this was to set up the eight row lace repeat so it looks right at the neckline. Are you all laughing at me now?

Since I do not have time to rip back, I’m in recovery mode. I have to finish the knitting today (this is the sort of play on words Tom intended when he named the business) so I can take time to block it on my day off tomorrow. I have to finish the neckline and the armholes.

P.S. I am at the end of my second ball of yarn. Would be really nice if I don’t have to get into the third. Do you think i’ll make it?
