Must. Keep. Knitting.

So.  I can’t type much right now because I’m giving my fingers a knitting break.  The story:

I had 1/2 of the back of my mom’s cardigan done when I left for work today at the yarn store I work at occasionally.

I brought with me, all the yarn I had plus the pattern I’d configured from the Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns using the numbers I’d gotten from my gauge swatch.

The problem?  When I looked at my knitting (12 inches long) I would have had to fit 5 increases (split by 3 plain rows) into one inch (13 inches before I would have set aside for later raglan connecting.

I had to frog.

And Frog I did.

One of the ladies I was knitting with asked “do you want us to cry for you?”  Knitters are the sweetest people.

Anyway, back on track.

I’m now knitting the cardigan in a top-down raglan style.  I’ve split for the sleeves, but I’m not any further than that.  (Sorry I don’t have photos.  My parents computer doesn’t speak my camera language and I don’t feel like giving it lessons.)

I’m going to go knit now.   I’ll post another update soon.

(by the way, my family opens christmas presents on christmas eve after we go to church.  Definetly a handicap!)

    Oh! I feel for you on the frogging! Glad to know you are now on track! And definitely don’t try to give the computer “language” lessons, it’s a sure-fire way to ruin the holiday mood! We can wait till you get home for pics!

    Sorry…..this coming year you should join the ‘I will make one gift a month club’ Hopefully this will help lower the worn out December knitter’s finger syndrome.
