Hitofude is going along swimmingly. Well... sort of.
Last night I got the second sleeve seamed and started on the collar and ribbing along the body. Tonight I finished up the ribbing, and went to bind the collar off, and discovered I didn't have near the amount of stitches I should.
And I can't for the life of me figure out why... unless I cast on the wrong amount of stitches, or somehow picked up the provisonal cast on wrong... but I don't think so.
You know me... I was sick at the thought of knitting it all again, so I decided to just press forward. I had to change some of the counts a bit, but I got the pattern to a place where I could slide it all on some waste yarn to try it on.
However, I am very pleased and relieved to say, it fits like a glove! (Thank goodness for narrow shoulders!) In fact it fits much better than I think it would if I'd had the right amount of stitches. As the painter Bob Ross so wisely said... there are no mistakes - just happy accidents!
So - the upper body is complete, now it's onto the body, where I expect the knitting will slow exponentially... there's a lot of increasing in my future.
