My progress through the swatches of the TKGA Hand Knitting Masters Program Level II continues slowly but surely. Swatch 5 requires seaming together 2 pieces of K2P2 rib so that the ribbing continues unbroken across the seam. Here’s my offering:
Next up is seaming columns to rows, like attaching a drop shoulder sleeve. Now things get tricky! But I am The International Knitter of Mystery, and I’ll not let a little thing like stitch-to-row ratio phase me.
For starters, though, I have to get the swatches right, and I think I made both of them a couple rows too long. No worries – I’ll just rip back a couple rows and re-bind off. Then the math fun can begin. But I wonder how that happened – did gnomes come in the night, like the cobbler’s elves, and knit 2 more rows after I blocked the swatches (I did measure, really)? I thought this house only had destructive gnomes, not constructive ones.
Maybe I can blame it on the Super Moon?
