Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Do not cast on during pity party: a cautionary tale

Posted by Amber on December 14, 2008

My Lattice Sweater (Lucy Planted Firmly on the Ground / EZ+BW=OTP / whatever cutesy name I’m going to call it) was coming along really great tonight.  I started the sleeves (see below) last night and joined them and worked 24 rows (got confused earlier, 12 RS rows).  But it wasn’t looking quite right…

Oh no, of course I had to serious screw something up.  I managed to do a 66 stitch sleeve (correct) on one side, and a 56 stitch sleeve (incorrect) on the other side.

Yeah, now I get to thread a lifeline in 40 inches of all over lattice stitch.  WONDERFUL.

I maintain that my sleeve idea was brilliant though: I’m worried about running out of yarn, so I did a provisional cast on, and did about 6 rounds.  Then I put 10 stitches on a holder, and joined just like I was joining sleeves for a raglan (ala EZ).  When  I finished the body and button band, I was going to split the leftover yarn and knit the sleeves as long as possible.
