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.
