@#$*! *&$%! #$%@!
Wondering how the adventure in lace knitting is going? Not well. Not well at all.
I finished the last portion of the body knitting, and the stitches basically matched up. However when I counted them to move on to the edging portion, I was 14 stitches short. That's a lot.
Now I have three choices here:
1. I can knit another row or two and creatively add 14 stitches. It's lace so what's a few extra holes here and there?
2. I can break my steadfast rule: don't turn back. Knitting, much like life, is never perfect so why go back and fix mistakes? But if I did, I'd have to rip back 12 rows to the third body section and hope the mistakes were just contained to the fourth section.
3. Shove the damn project in the bottom of the knitting bag and let it think long and hard about what its done.
I think I'm going to resort for option 3 for now.
In the meantime, I'm going to go play with my fabric for a while.
