I started a new project intending to turn a square into a rectangle using the same amount of yarn. I quickly did the math then proceeded to knit. My math was wrong (!). We were watching TV and I tried four separate times to do mental math to correct the spacing of the design while knitting at the same time.
This is what I've learned:
- I cannot do mental math
-I should not do mental math especially at night
-I should not believe myself and feel confident of any redesigning issues after dinner time.
I retired to bed thinking about my math problem and then in the morning, I solved the problem quickly with pen and paper and calculator. Well well well. I figured out the spacing in less than 2 minutes.
My sister's cardigan is coming along splendidly. I am on the ribbing, and all too soon I'll be knitting a sleeve - so excited and giddy!
What are knitting or crafting these days?
