Note to self:
When knitting take notes.
If it is going to be a few days before you get back to it take VERY good notes.
When it’s going to be weeks, and you will be sick, sleep deprived and hormone ridden in between - write an essay.

Of course I didn’t take a single note. I did place a bit of scrap yarn as a marker to measure from. If only I had thought to write down what exactly I needed to measure it might have been a little more meaningful. Given my complete failure to document lessons learned before I ripped, most of my infrequent knitting time has been spent trying to figure out what on earth to do next. But I am finally almost back to where I was before I ripped.

I would take a photo, but it looks just like it did last time. Other than the short rows, which might be worse. And who wants to document their knitting getting worse?

Now I just have to catch Grace and do a try on. That I will take pictures of.

I know exactly what you mean about leaving notes! I once left a sweater sitting off to the side for 4 months and when I decided to get back to it, I was at a loss! You are much braver than I, as I just left it where it is now…in a drawer! Now I am curious about it and wonder if unraveling it would help? Or maybe not!

Kind regards, Mel in Melbourne
