As you can see I have been moving right along with Acer. I spent any free moment I had working on it over the weekend and had just reached the point where I was to start the waist increases. I love how Kirsten added some shaping to what would be a very square looking sweater without it.
So.....last night as I sat down ready to start increasing, I noticed something......oh hell! If you click on the picture, can you see it?
If you look at the markers in the front, you will see that the markers on the right are much closer to each other than the markers on the left....and sadly I know exactly how that happened, but why I didn't notice it until all of the decrease rows were finished is beyond me.
I just wanted to cry as that translates into about 30 rows and on a top down sweater, that is a lot of work. So here is my dilemma. Do I pull back the 30 rows ...or...is there a way to just pull back between the markers?
If I only rework that portion of the sweater will there be enough distortion of stitches to make it sloppy? I am very bummed out about this as I was hoping to have it finished for SPA....sigh. What would you do? Ken's suggestion.....Just push against your boob with your shoulder when you are wearing it so no notices the dart is in the wrong place. Hmm........NOT helpful!
My days have been filled with stirring the dyepotand my evenings have been full with paperwork for my real job, so by the time I sit down at night I am pretty tired..........thus the error.
I am so fortunate that I get to do the things that I love for work, so I don't like to complain about workloads. Getting ready for a big show is a workout, but getting to spend time with some of my favorite people always makes it so worth it!
On the near horizon.........
Yep....some of that pinky goodness is for me to use on Anne's newest shawl pattern. Anne designed this and the Autumn Arbor shawls using my yarns, which I am thrilled about and will have for you to see at SPA. The pattern will be available soon and I will be offering it as a kit as well once the pattern is ready.
