Well, I'm hesitating to post this. I'm not sure why. Life is not always happy-go-lucky, but I don't want to be a whiner, complainer either. So it is with ambivalence that I'm posting about my current WIP: the toddler summer jumper from the April issue of Knit N Style. There is something about the name Knit N Style that rubs me the wrong way. But that's beside the point. This dress is cute, and I wanted to knit it. And apparently I'm just naive or not experienced enough, but when the pattern said to knit three ridges of garter stitch for the hem around the bottom, I just did that and went happily knitting on up the skirt to the waistband.
Nevermind that I kept smoothing down the hem of the skirt. "Oh, it's flipping up. Hmm. Well, look how cute the yarn is knitting up. Hmm, this hem is pesky..." Soooo. We all know how that goes.
Here's the cute waistband. Too bad this is going to be frogged tonight, entirely. I've decided to do a seed stitch hem to match the waistband, and make it longer so it doesn't flip up all the time. Harumph.
