The Downside of Losing Weight
Ah, the fruits of my labor. Nothing better than knitting feverishly all night on a WIP that I'm just dying to wear only to discover that along with pounds, I have dropped inches. Should be obvious I know, but it I was stupified, well, maybe, somewhat suprised when the tape measure stopped at a number 5 inches lower than before! That would explain why the sleeves were practically pants. Luckily for me this thing is knit top down with raglan sleeves so every size starts with the same number of stitches and just increases to a different number. I ended up frogging both sleeves (with ribbing) & 14 rows of the back. Ugh. I started on the sleeves (again) but I just didn't have the stomach to tackle the whole thing (again) last night. Maybe by the end of the weekend.
