No More White Stockinettte
I'm knitting a sweater for Dad for Christmas/his birthday. The main portion of the sweater is white stockinette. This is my first adult sized sweater, so I had no clue how mind numbing it is to knit that much with no pattern and no color. To make it worse, gauge swatches lie, so even though I made a gauge swatch, my gauge was wrong. Being the stubborn person I am, I refused to accept that it was too big until I had knit almost the entire back, meaning that I have knit almost 2 backs (one was frogged) and 1 front. I am done. Happy dances were danced, along with some woohoos. No more white stockinette for me.
