I had a big test and a paper due this week (actually, the paper is due today and I’m still working on it) so very little progress has been made the last few days. But once this paper is done, I’ll be on reading week!

I was kniting away when I realized the sleeve really was way too big.

I kept thinking ‘what’s going on?!’ and then it finally dawned on me. I knew why it was too big – and it was a user error, not a pattern error. D’oh. I got a bit upset.

But I’m back on track, almost to where I ripped, with the correct number of stitches. And I hope to get a bunch done tonight at Snb!

That’s it for today. Like I said, hopefully I can make up for lost time…

    I so feel your pain – my sleeve had the same sort of user issues. I had to rip it out twice. I just couldn’t admit it to myself until about 7″ of sleeve were knit.

    Go go go go go go!

    the restarted sleeve looks to be a much more reasonable size! :)

    best of luck making up the time! (and three cheers for reading week!)

    Ripping out is okay!
    As long as you do it right away! (Cartwheel/round off)

    What a foookin’ drag! I had to rip out my project, as well, and start over. Then switch to bobbins……sigh. Your sleevette looked great–one last training run? Chin up!
