Almost every knitting project, yes even socks and lace, there comes a time, or so it feels to me, where it is about to become a great gaping maw that will suck up every stitch leaving me with precisely nothing to show for a days work.
That is what happened yesterday. I did a lot of knitting on the button bands. I picked up stitches about 4 times, I know 6 or 7 rows, and then lloked at my yarn. And proceeded to rip it all out. Every bit of the work of the day before is gone, dust in the wind, and I am not quite back to where I wanted to be. I will have lots of yarn to do a hemmed edge. I think I can say that with confidence. Or not. No, I do think I will have lots of yarn.
My neck edge is about half the width I want and I just went into ball 2 of the blue on the previous round. I will have lots of blue to at the very least do the hemmed edge on the neck edges, and there still is a half ball of the grey to back me up.
It's just about what I hoped it would be like.
The only down side to this state of affairs is that I still have a wee t-shirt to finish. There is just a part of the button band left and to sew on buttons. Not much, but enough to really put a kink in things if I don't get my act together.
