Where in the world did the month go?

When it's just Not Right, and you love what you're making, isn't it grand to be able to edit and retouch? Especially on the Glorious KipFee!

No photos today. I finished the back, working in 3 sets of short rows and decreasing 6 more stitches in the center of the back, but my knitting is just too sloppy looking. The stitches are big and loose – blame it on those purls, though I think the weight of the sweater added to the tension shift as well as my own uncertainty about what I wanted to do math/wise. But I’m confident I did good knitting-math and will rip it and re-knit on smaller needles, just to be sure I have nice snug stitches.

I also wish I’d done one more trick when doing those end row decreases. I wish I’d wrapped the other color (in my case, the Yellow) around the yarn I was using to knit those end decreases. There is really too much space between the yellow stripe and the brown. Not enough of a space to justify ripping, because I do NOT want to purl in stranded colorwork any more than I have to. But I may just sit down with a needle tip and snug everything up one stitch at a time. More tedious, but more likely to be successful too.

Happy knitting to you! Happy January 31 as well!
