Today’s blog post was going to be about how I didn’t do nearly as much knitting this weekend as I planned to, but as I was picking out pictures for this blog post I started thinking, “Huh, that sleeve cap looks really weird.” I looked at my knitting from a distance and saw that it wasn’t just the pictures. There was something weird going on.
So I sat down and counted the stitches. There are way to many, and I have no idea how that happened! I know I didn’t have the pattern in front of me when I picked up my stitches, but I thought I did exactly what I did when I picked up stitches for the other sleeve. And then I didn’t check my work before continuing with my knitting. I was hanging out with my friends, and I didn’t want to sit and count stitches, which was clearly a huge mistake. It’s a good thing I didn’t end up knitting as much as I planned to this weekend because who knows how long I would have knit before I noticed how much larger my second sleeve is? Thankfully there are almost two weeks left in the KAL, and that’s plenty of time to knit one sleeve.
