I'm also knitting this shawl which has been excellent movie-watching knitting, but I hit a snag last week which sent me back a few steps. I'll post about that little nightmare another time.
And as you all know, there's my Autumnal Cardigan that I am determined to finish in the next few days. I started the weekend excited, knowing that I was really close to finishing, but then I discovered an incredibly frustrating problem on Saturday which makes me feel blah about moving on.
I completed the 1x rib collar and am happy with the way it turned out. It's smooth and wide and lays nicely against the front of my body.
But when I started to attach the sleeves, I discovered that the sleeve caps are much too long for the arm openings. I'm not really sure how this happened but at this point, I don't care. Wait, I do care but I don't have the energy to try and figure out why this happened. I just want to finish this cardigan and wear it. I've come so far and the yarn is so lovely .... I'm not giving up but I just need to whine a little. I have to think about what I'm going to do as I would rather modify the pattern than re-knit the sleeves as instructed. After all, I followed the instructions correctly the first time so I think I need to do something different now.
Wish me luck!
