Jayashri KAL Update

Well, one week into the Jayashri KAl with All Night Knits and I have already been attacked by my knitting, or bitten by my knittin’, depending on which knitting podcast parlance you prefer.  When switching from the bottom garter stitch band to the stockinette body of the sweater, I omitted the pattern stitches that give this pullover some of its sweet charm.  This error forced me to consult YouTube and finally learn how to drop down and change a knit to a purl. You can see my not so perfect results in the before and after photos.  Even though the effort was clumsy at best, it sill looks  better than the initial mistake. Yeah for learning! Yeah for YouTube! Yeah for Rachel knitting this sweater with me! Any other takers? It is not too late.

Before, with pattern started about 4 rows too late.
