In Tangled Yoke, every purl row is straight purling except row six, which contains two spots where there is a 5 in 1 increase. I purled that row without looking at the chart and then spent hours trying to figure out why I was short on stitches when I got to the centre of row 7. Then I finally moved the sticky note that I was using to track my place on the chart I saw the little %#$!!X*Z?!! "5-in-one" symbol. Trying not to focus on how annoying ripping back was, I absent mindedly removed a few - not all - but a few markers that were helping me check my work. Now I have to sort out (again) where I am (Other than in a very dark "place" that only other knitter's might imagine)
The Fair Isle has an issue related to the number of stitches and how it affects pattern as well. I only discovered this particular issue after several others were resolved that arose from my mixing medium sized sleeves with a large sized body. (Really, honestly, lets all admit we saw that one coming a mile away when I happily chirped that I could handle the discrepancy didn't we?!)
I do apologize for repeating myself but %#$!!X*Z?!!
So right now its sunny rather than the pouring rain the fore cast told us to expect so I'm going to go on my power walk during which I hope the sunshine will help me climb out of the knitting induced darkness enveloping my brain.
Thank you for enduring my rant!
