As I separated the sleeve stitches from the body, I found that I lost 1 stitch. I decided that when I seam the sleeve, I will fix it somehow.
As I started this serious stockinette portion, I increased a stitch and kept on knitting it for 5 rows. I ended up catching it, and ripping that stitch, then redistributing the tension of the yarn to make up for it. It's still kind of loose, but I can live with it.
So, this morning, I started on the right front of the sweater. I completed the section, and got to the point where I had to join the left and right fronts of the sweater. At the same time, I noticed that I had to start getting dressed for work. But of course, as a knitter, we say "just one more row". So, with the yarn curled up in my lap, I casted on the neck stitches, then continued to knit and connect both sides.
I decided to hang up my sweater, then I found out why my mommy and granny always say "haste makes waste".
Look at the back of my sweater.
The whole thing is twisted. I have a posterior möbius midriff. Lol! All I can do is laugh.
Happy knitting everyone. I'm going to fix it, and have a better progress report tomorrow. I promise. Haha!
