The good news is that my Kersti sleeves are finished. The bad news is that my miscalculations were so far off that I will be ripping them back to before the decreases. That’s what I get for altering the pattern, unaltering it and then altering it again without writing it down the second time. One sleeve is a bit longer than the other and may be wider too.
As you can see, the shoulder ribbing is not the same. I swear they looked exactly alike when I started the decreases. Oh well. I hope she survives the rip. Other knitters have said she doesn’t rip more than once. That’ll teach me to pay attention, huh? Have many other Kersti knitters come across knots in the skeins. I think this was my second knot in my 4th skein…It was interesting. Kersti is a 3 ply and one of the 3 plies was knotted the other 2 were not. And it had a white spot from the tie off. One of the more interesting knots I have come across.
Well to cheer me up through my Kersti disaster, I bought this poncho pattern and yarn from Granny’s Shoppe. Granny cornered/suckered me as soon as I walked in. She said it only took 2 skeins. Mind you, I wasn’t even looking for a poncho. I love Granny.
My mom and I are off to Three Black Sheep yarn shop tomorrow and the kids are going fishing with Grandpa. Have a great night.
