I should say, finally knitting a sweater. It's been awhile, and I have a lot of sweater amounts of yarn in my stash. Anyway, as you can see, I've been at it awhile, and have the main body of the sweater done.
This pattern, interestedly enough, suggests that I knit the button-band and collar before the sleeves. I could have ignored these instructions, but I decided why the hell not (despite the fact that it also suggested working the fronts at the same time with two balls of yarn attached...not doing that again). So I grabbed my needle and a crochet hook and started picking up stitches....until I got to the start of the V-neck and realized that I'm an idiot:
The needle cord I used to knit the rest of the sweater isn't going to be long enough to pick up all the stitches on both sides of the sweater as well as the neckline. Damnit. Time to rip it all out and...
Oh, wait. I'm using interchangeable needles. Maybe I'll just run up a longer cord with a smaller needle and switch needle heads and...
Oh crap. Where did all my 47" cords go?
|Notice a color trend here?|
Oh, right, I randomly bought a set of connectors ages ago. So now I can just remove the head at the other end and attach another 40" cord and:
Problem solved. I love interchangeable needles.
