Here We Go Round Again

With only a bare minimum of effort and angst, I am back to where I was when I had to rip out my work.  Observe!

What I did this time around was heed excellent advice from the Sanquhar Knitting Group forum on Ravelry, and also did a little recalculating.  Specifically, the advice was to purl two rows in the main color before getting started on the ribbing on the cuff.  The recalculating I did was to change to spacing, and also to re-chart the date that you see in the little box.  I had it charted differently last time, but now it is going well.

But wait!  the observant reader might say.  Wasn’t the purpose of this restart to fix mistakes?  And don’t I see a mistake on this very glove?

Riiiiiiight THERE.  Yes, observant reader.  You do see a mistake.  Rather 5 of them – miscounted stitches in the one row.  As soon as I saw them, I realized I could duplicate stitch over them and it will look fine.  That is assuming I remember they are there by the time this pair of gloves is done.  So, as is my general practice, I am ignoring them for now.

Anyway!  Onward and upward!  The next post will be more about these sanquhar gloves I keep talking about.  What are they?  Where do they come from?  What’s their story?  Check back to find out!
