The ribby cardi's right front is done. Finito. All stitched up (literally)!
You can't really see it in that picture, but about halfway up the right front, there is a wonky bit that's driving me insane. Here, let me show you up close.
It is quite hard to see, even still, but its wonky nonetheless. When I was knitting, I ran into a few knots here and there, and well, my yarn got all tangled up. And I untangled it. When I did, though, I noticed the yarn had started to come un-plyed (de-plyed, untwisted, how would you say that?). And the un-ply-i-ness of the yarn at that point caused the wonky bit. The stitches look twisted, but trust me when I tell you they're not. They're fine. I've tried lots of stretching and pulling and even a little minor surgery, but nothing has fixed it. I'm hoping the wonkiness will block out. Because I'm sooo very close to being done with this cardi. I even started the sleeves.
I really didn't want to waste any time here, so I'm doing both sleeves at the same time. This also helps because I don't have to remember so much about the pattern repeats. It is a bit difficult, though, as my balls of yarn keep getting all twisted up, but not as bad as when I'm doing color work.
Now for the big debate... I'm clearly not going to finish this before I leave for the Outer Banks Friday evening. Should I take the (very hot) wool sweater on my vacation. Or should I work on something a tiny bit more portable, like, say, my fingerless mitts? This will cause me to abandon the ribby cardi halfway through. And that's something that I have been trying not to do. (Don't mention that
