Hut By The Pond

You know, I might as well build myself a little hut by the frog pond. I seem to be spending all my time here lately.

I ripped back the Nicole Vest all the way to the waist eyelets. I tried to stop sooner, really I did, but there was just no picking it up correctly and I decided to go all the way back to the last plain row.

Even then I had my troubles. When I was knitting the upper body the first time I thought I had made an error in the way I was forming the SSP. What I was getting LOOKed correct so I had been content to go with it, but seeing as I had to reknit anyway I thought I would do the SSP the way I thought the pattern meant.

I should have left well enough alone. After knitting 4 rows I had to admit it looked better the first time. Rip it, rip it, rip it.

I'm sure Froggie is mocking me!

Sorry that you've been frogging so much lately. I spent Sunday doing that too. :(

Hope the muses are kind and this is the last rip-it session you have. :)

So far Ruinwen I haven't had to rip back again. That could be because I haven't actually knit much on it lately either. In the summer I tend to spend my afternoons wool combing outside in the shade and the evenings spinning in the basement where it is cooler. I do knit on the Nicole Vest a bit though and so far, (knock on wood) all is going well.
