I recently decided I've been knitting long enough to begin more complicated projects, like lace and cables. My first lace scarf (that I blogged about previously) is going pretty well after a rough start.
So, with that firmly in progress, I started the "Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers" from the Stitch N Bitch Nation book. I finished the right armwarmer after starting it over only three times. Then, I began the left one.
(Note: It is not wise to knit when stressed)
After starting the left one over twice, I was on track. I was reversing the chart just like I was supposed to. Or so I thought. THE LEFT ONE LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE RIGHT ONE!
Not to mention that there are 3 major things wrong with my pattern from typographic errors in the book. These books have so many errors! GET AN EDITOR, DEBBIE STOLLER!
I know it is my fault for not double checking first, but geez.
So, I also found out I am not reversing the pattern properly.
Maybe I should've just stuck with stockinette stitch.
