Make that first frogging of the new year. No, I didn't waste any time. Sometimes forward progress can be so elusive.
Yesterday I was cruising along with my knitting. In case you're wondering, this project is Luna Viridis. This morning I picked it up . . . just a few rows, I told myself. I had made it through a series of increases and moved on to the next section - the one where the pattern starts to take shape. I realized the problem when I got to the next increase row and didn't have enough stitches to complete all the increases.
The pattern said I should have had 129 stitches going into the increase row. I counted my stitches twice and confirmed that I didn't have 129. Then I went back and double checked the pattern to make sure all the previous increases added up to 129. You never know. Sometimes there's a mistake in the pattern. No such luck this time. I should have had 129 stitches, and I didn't.
Of course that left only one solution.
It's the second day of the new year, and already I'm ripping back. It's like pulling off a band-aid. If I do it quickly, it's not as painful. I missed some increases along the way, and I'll rip back until I find them.
In the grand scheme of things, it's not too bad. This is one problem I can quickly solve. I'm sure this new year will throw a few more problems my way. I hope I can solve them as easily.
