Frustration

Warning:


I finished the sleeves of the square dance jumper and joined them to the body. I painstainkingly counted the stitches to make sure they were evenly balanced. Or so I thought...



Fail. I have 50 more stitches on the front than the back. AAAAAH.
I've knit about an inch of 330 stitches that I now have to rip back. AAAAAH.
I'll have to make sure I don't drop any stitches and get the sleeves back onto the other needles to join them again. AAAAAH.
I have a week to get this finished. AAAAAH.

I think a stiff drink is in order.

Oops, I almost forgot to mention, the hospice craft sale was on last weekend, and they raised €5,500! Well done to all involved!

Oh no!!!

A stiff drink, yes, but wait until you sober up to finish the sweater.

That was some sale for hospice, well done!

I'm betting a Jemmy or two were consumed last night!

Your jumper is looking good. It will work out fine, you'll see. :)
