When I first started working for the state, I could never figure out why we had a holiday off so soon after the long Christmas Holiday. A few years later (18 isn), I am pretty happy to have the day off so soon after the long Christmas Holiday. It is a good day to just kick back do some knitting and enjoy the last real holiday off until, oy, Memorial Day.
One would think that a expert knitter would have seen something funny going on before then! Perhaps she is not the expert knitter she think she is.
I had decided to cast on the fronts and backs all in one to eliminate sewing up on my sweater. Long about Friday night I decided to take it off the needles and just throw it around my body to see how it was fairing. Not so good. It was a good 9 inches too wide and keeping in mind that rib does suck up a bit, this one just was not.
I ripped it all out, went down a size in the pattern and needle. I am now knitting just the back and will do the same on the fronts. The back is a good project for knitting in public. I am hoping all goes well from here on out.
Thank you MLK and the State of IL.
