The arm warmers fit like a, well, glove. He gave me the old ones back – I’m going to frog them and make myself a pair, maybe with some fancy-schmancy pattern or something.
In other news, I’ve been working on this capelet for the past four or five days. I substituted thinner needles and yarn, so it’s taking a while. Yesterday I discovered that at one point, I’d slipped the increases over a couple of steps.
And then I cursed.
I put in a retro- lifeline, like so:
and ripped back ten or so rows – but I had issues making the yarnovers work. So I just frogged the whole thing and started over – and tried a 1×1 rib instead of the 2×2 I had originally.
Fingers crossed this time around.
