Despite feeling like I tinked as much, maybe more, than I knit, the sweater did get longer in the last 2 days. Unfortunately, some of the mistakes that I didn't tink are in the front and extremely obvious. In fact, the back looks way better than the front. If there wasn't a "seam" in the garter section, the front & back could just be flipped. Alas, the zephyr girlss were clever enough to design a center seam in piece of circular knitting! The worst part is that there are about 5 inches of very pretty knitting AFTER the mussed up part.
No more knitting on this thing until I decide whether or not it's worth pulling out that much work; especially since it'll take me weeks to reknit it without another car trip planned in which I get to be the passenger.
Next time, Lanora, I'll drive while you knit since you can probably knit accurately in the presence of people.
not sure why I make this turn of events sound so bad. The truth is that I love knitting and this yarn so pulling out 5 inches allows me to maximize the joy of the Tree Jumper.
(I tried to hide the bad parts in these photos.)
