The Success of the Eyelet

Yesterday I promised you a picture the progress on my February Lady Sweater...



I know it doesn't look like much but really there's a lot of hard work and perseverance that got me this far. The pattern calls for 38 YO to be distributed evenly over 207 stitches. Now it doesn't take much to figure out that 38 doesn't go into 207 evenly. Nope I had to do some heavy duty math. 3 times. Yup I'll admit it. I'm not afraid. I'm not ashamed. I had to redo the eyelet row 3 times. I re-knit it three times and I still have one extra stitch (shhhh don't tell). My solution to this problem it to just knit two together on the next row cause I really can't stand attempting this a fourth time.

So now I head forth in to new territory (for me at least). I shall attempt the separation of the sleeves!!!
