The knitting went a bit better the past few days. A knitting friend was here for lunch last week. She looked at my work and suspected I was periodically knitting into the wrong place. That's what I get for thinking I can knit while watching a movie or sitting in a darkened concert hall! I have been paying extra careful attention to every single stitch, and it's going well. The back of the sweater is nearly complete. Just one more inch to go and I will bind off some stitches and put the rest on a stitch holder. Then I move on to complicated pieces, like knitting and shaping the front pieces, and making buttonholes, and picking up stitches. I don't know why picking up stitches strikes terror in my heart, but it does. Expect to hear more complaints from me in a few days when I muck that all up.
The camera also cooperated for these pictures. Happy times indeed.
P.S. I am hoping that sewing the sweater pieces together and blocking the whole thing will fix the curling of the bottom edge. Please tell me I am right!
