So, I've been sitting on the couch for a few hours now knitting a toddler sized sweater with this self striping yarn my husband picked out. I'm about 13 inches in to the back piece... thats right I picked a pattern that was worked flat instead of in a round. So I'm knitting and knitting and then I stop and think to myself this is going to be a really neat looking sweater, I love the colors and the stripes.. and thats when it hits me! How in the world and I going to match up these stripes??? Even if I manage to match up the front and back pieces, I doubt I'll have the same luck when it comes to the arms. So now, I must frog the project and look for my size 8 circular needles so that I can start the project over again. Well, I guess there are worst ways to spend a Saturday night.
