- Jean has finished the second Tabi sock, and they look fantastic! Hooray!
And now on to the fabulousness that is the yoke of my sweater. Here is my progress so far, in all its shining glory, sitting in the one place in the house where I could actually get a little bit of natural light this morning:
I stopped knitting last night because I ran into a slight problem. This, y’all, is what happens when you try to knit while overly sleepy:
See how the stitch I just purled is cream? And now the next stitch is also cream? Yeah, not supposed to be like that. I jacked it up. I know it won’t be hard to fix (I can drop the stitches and reknit them with the right colored float as I go), but still…annoying!
For good measure, here is a closeup of a section on non-jacked-up yoke:
