Making up is not hard to do! For starters, I'm more confident a ripper -- used to be I would always tink stitch-by-stitch, for fear of not getting the knitting back on the needles correctly. Maybe the body of the Rowan ASC yarn holds to itself better than some I've knitted with, but Smooch was easy to take back to the six-inch mark and reknit from there. Now, three days later I've knit well past the point I'd reached incorrectly before -- and that's after knitting but two hours on the weekend (because I didn't take the pattern on the road with me, and feared doing too many or too few increases before forging on). In fact, I think I'm ready to start the armhole shaping tonight. I'd intended to knit Becky's swatch, too, having narrowed my choices and packed the Banana Cream Cotton-Ease skein -- but I forgot to take an extra set of needles, and chose not to take Smooch off its pair for that. Since we have neighborhood Independence Day festivities later in the week, the Becky-square may be the perfect thing to tote around the corner.
