Today’s Knitting News

I finished the collar of Grace, seamed the sleeves, seamed the first side and then tried to seam the second. To my dismay, I found I had knit the front right with 8 rows of rib not 4 like the front left and back piece. No way am I undoing a collar and frogging an entire front with buttonholes to correct those 4 stupid brain-dead rows.

Thanks to the help of Katharine Buss’s Big Book of Knitting (and a couple other references for more detail) inspiration struck – use the technique for lengthening/shortening a garment to change the stitches rather than the size! All I have left to do is use the graft stitch to “reknit” the two pieces back together and then I can seam and wear my new cardie!
