On humility.

Sweater surgery is underway. I attempted to block the sleeves to the proper length. That aggressive blocking changed the fabric. I’m expecting to be able to fix that with another blocking. Notice the ridge where the two new inches join the old.

I just have to keep glancing at the Nagano to remind myself why the irritation is worth it.

This was never meant to be a vest.

To add the length after having done all the finishing, snip a leg of a stitch and work the cut round out of the rounds above and below it, catching all the stitches onto two circular needles. Once they’re free of each other, work the length necessary and then graft them back together.

In other news, here’s a sweater that worked out!

Norah Gaughan’s Kingscot from Twist Collective. Fun.
