Then I got home.
I picked up the pattern to read what to do next, and that's when I noticed it. Those dreaded words that so many knitters hate: "AT THE SAME TIME".
Sure, I had my sleeve decreases done, but did I also start the neck shaping while doing so?? Yeah....no. And the part that kills me? I had even read ahead and knew that I was suppose to do the neck shaping at a certain point while knitting the sleeve decreases before I had cast on, but had completely and totally forgotten all about it when I got to that part. I was so determined and anxious to get this project done that I was knitting without thinking.
Sadly, I now have to tink back half of what I had knitted up last night just so that I can get that stupid neck shaping started. As much as I love this cardigan, I'm already bored of it and want to move onto the next project. But I had promised myself that I wouldn't start up anything new until I get this done. My hopes of having this finished in time to wear to Brett's company Christmas dinner, which is tomorrow night, is not going to happen. Le sigh.
Ok, I should go tackle this tinking back business before I lose all interest and this cardigan either gets put into time out (aka: thrown into the bottom of the proverbial knitting basket), or thrown into the trash. Remind me again why do I like to knit??
