I'm working on a sweater that looks on the surface to be rather simple. Start at the bottom, work up to the shoulders, then down the back. It's a fascinating pattern, encouraging all sorts of creative ideas.
It's a beautiful yarn, appearing to have more depth and color after knitting than in the rather dull-looking skein.
But oh, am I having trouble with the neck.
I have ripped it out several times in an effort to make the join smoother. Maybe it's the cotton tape yarn. Maybe it's the Addi needles. Maybe it's me! Maybe I just need to keep on slogging and not worry about getting it perfectly joined. Perfection begone! Let's get on with this.
