Solving Problems, One Underarm at a Time
This was the (most recent) problem with Husband's sweater. Fortunately, it was just a matter of reserving underarm stitches on one sleeve -- on the left sleeve, I'd only held six stitches, but on the right sleeve, I'd held twelve. Twelve was the correct number, so the left-side raglan was all wrong. I frogged back to the place where I joined the sleeves to the body, put six more stitches on reserve for the left underarm, and then started knitting again.
It's going swimmingly. Like Ryan Lochte.
Get what I did there? It was an Olympics joke! 'Cause I'm knitting while watching the Olympics! The Ravellenic Games will provide all sorts of opportunities for knitting/sports puns, I'm sure. Stay tuned.
Seriously, I'm halfway through the raglan part again. And I had to stop knitting in there to write a sermon. I'm going to have no trouble finishing this sweater pretty quickly now. And then I can move on to other things. Awesome.
