Apparently I've forgotten how to purl.
I'm embarrassed to even show the finished Newborn Vertebrae sweater. For once I'm happy the photo is blurry and taken in bad lighting. The shadows and blurriness help hide the flaws.
How could I botch something so simple, so badly? Apparently I've forgotten how to purl.
When I think back to most, if not all my 2019 projects, they've been either stockinette in the round, flat garter or open lacework where the purl vs. knit gauge didn't matter that much. But take a look...
Good grief! Look at the difference between the body of the sweater knit flat and the sleeve knit in the round.
Good stinking grief!
I need to go back to beginner's knitting class.
So, this little sweater will be saved for those days when the laundry hasn't been done in two weeks, baby is extra spitty, and they don't leave the house.
