knitting by my hands and from my heart

The yarn stash just keeps on growing! I'm a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, and a friend who works in Corporate America, lives in the Boston, MA area and is always looking for more time to knit.

Back on the Needles

B's twisted cables pullover that is. Being an active 4-year old, he managed to stretch the stretchable cotton so that the neck was out of shape and falling off of his shoulders. The length was getting too short as well. Growing boy!

Being a top down, I pulled out (frogged: rip-it! rip-it!) the bottom hem and put it back on the circs to add another few inches or so in length. For the stretched out neck I picked up about 80 stitches (originally it was a cast-on of 88) and knit one row and bound off. Now, I can barely get it over his head--oh well. It'll work for the Fall and then C can wear it in about a year.

It's just that I get so frustrated when things don't turn out the way they're supposed to!
