There are so many times in life we anticipate completion to only discover error close to the finish line.
That would be the first body piece of my Common Ground cardigan. All I needed to do was bind off. With less than 20 stitches to go, I had to face the sad sad truth that the giant cake of Ecological Wool was gone, and would not be enough yarn for an intact bind-off.
So I backed it out to the beginning and was going to join just before the bind off. I can't bring myself to back out another row. I mean it's not an exorbitant amount of stitches, but still ... I'm a lazy beast. I'm really sad that this section is not done. Also, I'm worried if the join will be secure enough at this point. So I will put the Jane Richmond double knot method of joining yarn to the test.
I'm at about 6.5 inches into the leg part of my Mr. Dress-up Sock. I measured my husband's favorite sock leg and it's about 7.5. This feels ... long to me, but what do I know? I am knitting the Men's version. Do you think I should start the heel or what?
I have not touched my Great Divide in a long time, but my goal is to finish it by end of day Monday.
In the midst of these on going Works in Progress, I want to cast on something new. But what will it be? TBD my friends.
How are your works in progress coming? Do you still have the zeal, or are they feeling stale, and you're casting on the new?
