Out Of Knitting Time Out

I have finally recovered from realizing that the hours of knitting that led to the creation of button bands and the shawl collar for my Arlo sweater were a fail. Arlo spent a couple of weeks in timeout. I knit a couple of hats and worked on a few long term projects.

Over the weekend, I ripped it all out. The uneven looking button holes, the too-small shawl collar, the wonky picked up stitch in one corner – it’s all gone.

Somehow, everything worked better this time. The stitches picked up evenly and I’m through the first group of short rows. A little bit of tender discipline and love and suddenly, Arlo is back to being my darling.
