Remember my Tangled Yoke Cardigan? This knit started life in Houston and has come a long way over my travels this summer. I've got the sleeves joined to the body and I've worked all the way up to where the beautiful cable that circles the shoulders gets knit in (take a look here to see the cable). I've started the cable twice now and run into troubles both times - one time I had one stitch left over at the end, and the next time, after careful counting, I had two. Oops.
The thing is, it's not a tough cable if you think of it row by row - I can totally do this. The thing that gets me is that it happens over a ka-trillion stitches! Somehow, I'm losing my place. And I reeeeeally want to conquer this cable because I reeeeeeally want to wear this lovely knit! So close, I'm SO CLOSE!
My new plan: row by row, day by day. I'm going to challenge myself to do a row a day until I make it past the tangle and then it will be smooth sailing. Tonight, I'm going to start with some serious re-counting to make sure that this isn't something that happened a row or two down - and then (deep breath)...row one. Wish me luck.
