380 x 26= 9880

That is how many stitches of ribbing have to be reknit on this thing. I finished my comfy gray sweater back in August. (Ravel it here!) Sadly, I picked up too few stitches for the front bands, that it caused the fronts to pull up and pucker a bit. Grr. So I put it into time out for um, awhile, until I felt like reknitting all those stitches. I ripped down to the pickup row, and increased every two stitches. Increasing to 1/3 more stitches than I had the first time.
I’m going to be out of town the next two weekends (Hullo, Rhinebeck!) and this is the perfect weather for this sweater, so I’m hurrying the hell up to get it done. So far? I’ve knit 6 rows.

Day 7: Practice makes perfect. Practice makes perfect. Practice makes perfect.

    If this years Rhinebeck is like last years, you won’t be needing that sweater. October “heat wave”.

    Have fun at Rhinebeck! Maybe CQ and I will make it next year (though we say that every year.) Put me on the list as interested in a fiber club, but I can’t join until Jan. (It totally sucks being a responsible adult!)

    nothing is as good incentive as wanting to wear the silly thing… although I still have not finished my must have. Ugh. I think, now, that it is the smell of the wool that is putting me off! Can you imagine such blaspheme?

    It’s worth making it right. You’ll definitely need that sweater this year. I doubt you’ll have the heat-wave we had last year. Too bad I’ll miss seeing you. :-
