MDS&W Pr0n - Week 7

The last of the STR from Sheep and Wool - Mediumweight in Seastone



And yes, I am aware that three of the five colors I bought were blues and greens (Plus the green Footzey Foo heavyweight I used for my Red Dwarf Socks). It was slightly less obvious when I was also picking up pinks and purples for Roxy, but what can I say? I am drawn to them. :D

I was hoping to be able to post a triumphant FO picture of my Molly sleeves today, but there was an Incident. I cruised through the second sleeve on Wednesday and managed to actually finish it. I slipped it over my arm to admire it (Pride goeth before...), and I looked at the cuff. Huh. That's really, really big. Way bigger than I expected. I took it off, and compared it to the first sleeve. It was SIGNIFICANTLY wider. I stared at it. I looked at every pattern row, trying to figure out where I went off-pattern. Finally, I found it.
Do you see where the arrows are pointing? I anchored those light green loops in the wrong spot on sleeve #2, which gave me 12 of them, instead of 8. (...aaaaaand there's the fall). So, yeah. The ENTIRE cuff was half again as big as it was supposed to be. I had to rip the entire thing out, back to that green row, to fix it. (17 rows, if you are wondering.)

On the upside, now that the rows are 2/3 the length they were, they move a LOT faster. I'm back up to the orange row just before the pink I was on when this picture was taken. With any luck (and less foul-ups), I'll have a FO by the end of the weekend.

Have a good one, all!

At least you didn't finish the whole sleeve before you noticed your error. I'd do that *cough*tomato*cough*

Love the STR! I'm getting more and more drawn to those blues/greens lately too.

Incredible crochet-work. I'm so impressed and jealous. I wish I could knit.

Noooo! At least crochet is fairly quick to redo.

Lovely yarn. I tried to get out of a colour rut, but I was still drawn back so now I embrace it.

Just at least wait to hold the FO shoot until you wear it at the HP book launch. It's only appropriate. We can wait.

The sleeves look good, I hope you can fix them without too much trouble.
