I am on my second arm on my sweater...

I was knitting away, after my cuff of a CO of 37 sts I was to increase in the beg and end of each row work in the even for 7 rows and repeat till 22 inches.

Well I got to 15 inches and I thought I would just give my stitches a count...

Yeah, well I still had 37 sts on the needle.....

I could not believe my eyes..... I have been increasing everytime....

So I think about it for a moment, yeah, I have been increasing on the first of the row, then doing a ssk stitch at the end.....

which is the ending part of the sleeve to BO.... GRRRRR

Ripped and starting over......
:roflhard: what can you do but share and laugh.

I have done similar things too. Working straight for several inches when I'm supposed to be decreasing or whatever. Sometimes I am just so deep in thought while I'm knitting!
