So there I was, making great progress on my gray tank – when I realized I had messed up the waist shaping completely.
One evening, Thursday I believe, I sat down without a care in the world to watch Midsomer Murders (I’m on a bit of a binge with that show – up to season 18!) and just knit away in stockinette up until bedtime.
Except that I should have been doing my waist shaping in exactly that stretch of knitting. Sigh.
So this evening, when I sat down to watch Midsomer Murders, I slid a circular needle in at the row where I should have started shaping, and ripped back down. Fortunately the placeholder circular worked out great and I was able to begin again without any hassles. This time, working the shaping like I was supposed to! And the yarn did not seem to suffer from being ripped, which I was a little concerned about. So, other than a few wasted hours, no harm done, and I am almost where I was when I figured out my mistake.
