January Sweater

January 1st 10am – Cast On
(meant to cast on at midnight…was too busy “Just Dance 2ing” on the WII)

.

Cast on was a piece of cake…increasing was easy…love this yarn…soft and easy on the fingers.
Knit for a while between sips of coffee and cinnamon rolls.
.

Doesn’t it look great so far?

January Sweater January 1st

Don’t look too close though, I messed up.  I got too cocky…
.

Directions said to put the sleeve stitches on a holder, cast on 5, place marker, cast on 5 more, work the back stitches and then repeat the sleeve process on the other side.  Weeeelllll.  I only cast on 5 under both arms, totally ignored the instructions to place the marker and  cast on 5 more.
.

See…
.

bummer

.
See those lonely 5 stitches?  Oh well.  Carly said I should just leave it.  Usually I would, but I think I need to get this 12 in 12 thing off to a good start.
.

Commence ripping.

    I worked on this over break and have the body finished (but had to go back to work–bummer!). I also messed up on the underarm thing, but realized and was able to fix. The yarn is wonderful. Starting on sleeves!
