As I knit up the k2p2 rib for Swatch #1 last night and noticed imperfections in my stitches that probably would cause it to be rejected, I had the passing thought “tell me again WHY I thought this was a good idea?? My husband, my mom, my friends, they don’t even NOTICE if a stitch just happens to be a hair out of place, and they’re the ones that really count!!” Oh yeah, I reminded myself, this is something I WANT to do for myself and nobody else…. so tonight I’ll be ripping out the swatch and starting over. will be switching to size 7 needles from size 8, though. Thank goodness there’s no deadline!
