What a relief to finish the banana jersey - although "golden" is probably a better description of the colour. I knitted so much last weekend that my knitting callous (on the little finger of my left hand) got rather sore! The last bit of knitting was the high neck, which I decided to do longer than the pattern required as my daughter likes to keep warm. On Sunday afternoon, I was five rows from the end when I suddenly realised that I'd picked up neckline stitches all the way to end of the left shoulder! How could I have been so stupid!! I was quite distraught - all that hard work...no WAY was I going to pull out nearly fifty rows of rib. I was just going to have work a miracle.
Turned out to be easier than I thought: I cut a stitch, picked up on the edge, carefully pulled out the ten or fifteen stitches or so that needed to come out, carefully cast off.....and it all worked out very well. Had a bit of extra neck, if you see what I mean, but once I'd sewn it all up, you'd never know that I had to do a bit of overlapping. I thought that was a VERY clever save!
Took me three days to sew it up, mostly because time was suddenly very short this week as I started a new job. Haven't quite gotten into the routine yet. But I'm awfully pleased that I made my target and finished (knitting, at least) on the day I'd intended.
(...many frustrated decades later....)
For reasons I can't fathom, my computer can't read the camera card, whether directly or via a cable plugged into the camera. Never had a problem before. Must be the damn card. Aaaaargh, does this mean the end of my blog....?
