And so the right front has been frogged this evening... New plan. To knit a few inches - match the dropped stitch ladders with the left front and drop them early.
Then later on at the reverse shaping stage where I believe I should be dropping a stitch in accordance with the pattern I can simply run my eye down to double check that it is in fact correct.
My only worry now lies with row that states:
"cast off 3 stitches at beg. of next row" <-- now how do you reverse the shapings on that? you can't cast off at the end of a row [believe me - I tried!] anyone?!
I've been listening to my first podcast tonight on iTunes - Cast On by Brenda Dayne - brilliant!
The boy is away at an [enforced by his work] evening class every tuesday for the next 12 or so weeks so I have taken over the 'couple couch' with knitting and listened to knitting radio. Very cool!
Episode 10 "Bitch and Bitch" she talks specifically about the whole Sew Fast Sew Easy / Stitch n Bitch saga. Very interesting.
What else have i been up to this evening - well I frogged my hat - bollocks'ed it up. I seem to have lost the ability to knit at the moment - everything I knit ends up being frogged *sigh*
I also seem to be in total denial about the fact that I have a craft stall in 3 weeks. I havent knitted any covers for ages - for reasons I cannot go into on a public blogs [but which my fellow stitch n bitchers will be aware] things in my private life are a bit challenging to say the least at the moment - and all I want to do is knit for myself. Selfish - but I need it!
And i'm coveting a hooded jumper from 'Simply Noro' - it only takes 1000g of Noro Kochoran ... at approx £106 ... anyone got any good substitute ideas? I'm currently thinking Colinette One Zero - I think it will substitute well but given my current knitting trend can anyone confirm this? I have lost all knitting confidence...
Anyway - back to the right front of Bella and Friends.
