If you are of the feint of heart, get squeamish when you see photos of ripping and tearing apart, you best not proceed. Don't say I didn't warn you......... It's like a bad car accident. You try not to look but....... you're gonna look aren't you?
For Christmas, The SM bought me some beautiful alpaca yarn. My favorite. I had found a pattern online (it was FREE) that I really liked and decided to use my new yarn. The pattern is for a sweater..... I know! I can hear you all groaning. I should know better! I KNOW! Awright all ready!
As you can see, there is much detail in this sweater. I worked hard on it for a month. Knitting here and there on it when I could. It takes tons of concentration and remember this post? Yeah. This has been a hard project for me.
Knitting merrily along I consult the photo that comes with the pattern so I can see the finished project because something just doesn't seem right and the more I knit....... the more my sweater front doesn't look like the sweater front in the photo.
There's a reason.
The very front of the sweater where the buttons go, I've got major stitches backwards! The whole section! If it were the back I'd say to heck with it but it is the very front which it would be as if I'd spilt ketchup down the front of me and pretended it is supposed to be there!
The back of the sweater.... the back wouldn't care if it was backwards.... it's, the BACK!
So, I do what I seem to do best when knitting sweaters...... I rip it all out.
And I am right back where I started from.
P.S. If any of my readers out there..... hello? You are out there aren't you? Hello? (Crickets chirping in the back ground....) Grumble. I'm talking to myself again! I was just going to tell them that I hope I haven't ruined any ones desire to learn how to knit. It's not that hard. Really! It's just me..... had they stuck around long enough for me to tell them that.......
Hello? (chirp chirp chirp......) Drat!
