I happily cruised through the raglan increases on my sweater. The classic Stripe Acceleration Effect was definitely felt here. It went by in a flash. The sleeve divide was the same, barely a pause.
(dun dun dun)
I forgot about making buttonholes. This marker had one express purpose…to remind me about buttonholes.
What a bonehead move! A full inch too far. In a yarn that doesn’t really cooperate with being ripped out. UGH.
I let a lot of mistakes slide. This is not one of them. This type of mistake needs to be corrected, no ifs, ands or buts.
When faced with the choice to either drop down to fix a mistake or to rip back, I always choose dropping stitches, correcting the problem and laddering back up. Worst case scenario, I can’t fix it and maybe even make it worse. Ripping back is always there as Plan B.
This time, I got lucky.
Viola! Buttonhole Surgery Success! Woooo!
Assuming, I don’t forget anything else, it should be smooth sailing to the bottom hem from here!
My goal is to have this sweater ready to wear at Stitches in late February. Hopefully I can say this without jinxing myself…that deadline is a no brainer! Time to start thinking about buttons.
