1. Frogging the yoke and re-knitting it, obviously, although the re-knit went much faster than I anticipated - probably because it was 4 inches less to knit.
2. Knitting the edgings. Yeah. That was a giant mess. Not to mention the pattern wasn't exactly over-explicated.
3. Knitting the yoke with all of those balls of yarn. Another giant mess.
This is the actual Classic Elite Bam Boo for Butterfly. It came yesterday, thank goodness. I was getting kind of worried. This is the same color as in the pattern. I do that a lot. I guess I'm kind of unimaginative. But, hey, if I like the color, why change it? I finished swatching last night, and I just started the right front.
I'm also knitting a scarf - the Trellis Scarf from IK Spring 06 - for my mom's birthday. I made one for myself last year and I love it. I made mine in Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Tidepool. I'm making mom's in the same yarn but in Midnight. Chances are it will not be finished by her birthday. I have to do it on the sly, since I'm currently living at home, plus the last Trellis took me, oh, 9 months to complete. Let's just say there was no knitting over the summer.
