The Sweater Saga II

0217100006

And here we have the sweater on the 17th. Still knitting the first sleeve. This was the point at which I seriously began to doubt my ability to finish the sweater in time for the ball. And also to wonder if I even had enough yarn to finish it at all. Instead of pregnancy vitamins, I take energy vitamins each morning, but a gal still has to have enough sleep to function, and at three days before the ball….yeah, I had quite a way still to go!

On the 18th, I finished the sleeve lace and I discovered that the written portion of the lace pattern was incorrect. The chart is right, but I had only glanced at it for long enough to be sure I understood how the triple crochets fit together. As a result, I ended up with 1/3 again as many shells as I was supposed to have. I decided not to rip out what I had done, but to press on incorrectly. Ripping was just not an option given the limited amount of time I had. Is the suspense killing you yet?
