here’s my first sweater, which i resolved to finish by the end of january.
i knitted furiously and got about 3/4 of the way done. then i saw 4 dropped stitches. groan. i was far enough along to try it on, and it was snug, so snug that only a thin t-shirt or tank top could be worn underneath. groan again. i was really, really hating the sweater. so i stopped working on it.
last week i realized the only way i would ever finish it was if i started over. so i frogged this weekend. i’m starting over this week, with a new goal of finishing before fall. this time, i’ll use a provisional cast-on (it would have been helpful the first time), and i’m going to make it slightly bigger. and no more dropped stitches. and this time around, i hope i love it.
