You know those tests that are designed to catch you out? The ones that are a list of questions that tell you to do all sorts of weird things with a piece of paper but then the last one is to ignore all the instructions above?
Yes? Well I have fallen for that one. I am far too old and (I hoped) too wise to but it has happened 😦 I was so eager to cast on my latest project having gone through all the trauma of swatching etc, etc that I failed to read the instructions properly. By this I mean read them all the way through until the end.
I read the first bit up until where it says repeat the last x number of rows a total of 5 times, and off I set. Merrily knitting away each evening. Then I read the next bit where the instructions are slightly different for each increase row. Oh bum. I have now got almost 2 balls worth of knitting wrong.
Tonight will be working out how much of a mistake it is and whether I do truly have to undo the best part of 2 weeks worth of knitting. My mistake totally. Doesn’t make me feel any better though.
(Excuse my while I scream into a nearby cushion; ARRGGGHHHHHH!)
