So, I was happily knitting along on my sweater, when I started to run into some issues. The stitch pattern in itself is very easy. So I wondered how could I be having so much issues. It all started when I was at knitting group. I had 1 extra stitch, and I managed to K3tog to hide the small error. The stitch pattern still looked good, so I just carried on. I then got to the decreasing for the waist shaping. By the time I got to the second decrease row, my stitch count was ALL off. I just wanted to cry. So I figured that I would just rip it out, and go down a needle size or two and keep the regular stitch pattern the same. However, I decided to just email the designer anyway in hopes that she would get back to me soon.
Amy Herzog is such a sweetheart. She initially emailed me to let me know that she received the message, and would answer it later on in the weekend because she was traveling. The next email was a step by step explanation of the decreases. So after I got the explanation, I realized what my issue was. I missed a yarnover. Ugh! Why do I keep doing that???
So here is my progress, right before the waist shaping decreases (since I had to rip them back). I have completed 5,880 stitches.
So, while I was perusing through Ravelry, I found another event called Vestvember. Participants finish a vest during the month of November. I have not fully committed to this event just yet. But let's say I hypothetically have enough knitting time to finish a sweater and a vest this month. I would choose Sexy Vesty. It is soooo cute!
Just an FYI.. the other projects have been put on hold. I love the February Fitted Pullover so much that I have been monogamous. OK, enough talking. I've got waist decreases to get back to.
