Another February Baby Sweater
This is my eighth known baby sweater according to Ravelry. I've knit this sweater pre ravelry so I know there are others about. Each time I make this sweater, I forget some stuff and then I alter some directions to make it as seamless as possible.
I knit the wee little sleeves in the round and ingeniously picked up through the back edge the stitches that create the body...if you were sitting beside me you would be able to see what I did. So I guess you'll have to trust me when I say, I'm sometimes a genius!
However this sometimes a genius made some rookie mistakes and started the yoke three times! Yes, I was not in my knitting zen state of mind. Oh well, lucky for me, I caught the mistake and righted the wrong. Phew.
The other little glitch was I dived into deep stash (again pre-ravelry days) and started the sweater not reading the content of the yarn. I thought I was knitting with a blend but nope, I was knitting with 100% cotton which is not kind to my hands or my arthritis.
I'm so happy I powered through the knitting and was eternally thankful for my RA being under control.
