Did you think poor Sprössling would ever return from the jungles of DeNile? Now that I'm behaving well and, finally, keeping my head about me, Sprössling is growing nicely, however, a little more slowly than we'd both like. Anne's pattern is well written and ALL problems have been of my own making. Sprössling isn't very happy about that, but she'll survive and, hopefully, thrive!
For some unknown reason I started the right front, but knit the shaping for the left. How on earth? Ya, I know! AND, the armscye shaping was correct, IF it had truly been the right front. But, the thing was, I knit the waist shaping in the wrong place, on the wrong side of the piece and, well...what the hell was I thinking?! (Yes, this is all confusing, how do you think I feel?) Welcome to my brain! Perhaps, the error was constant dropping of pattern pages, not marking the pattern well, taking too few notes, not keeping my head about me and, therefore, getting lost in jungle.
The error of gauge was also my own...yes, YET another error. Instead of keeping the correct needle in my bag, it had been put away. PUT AWAY...how does one put away needed needles!? One thing I'm very good at is making errors, multiple errors. Thank the knitting goddess Sprössling and I finally made our way back from the dark side. We rode the waves and now we're moving into smooth waters.
