May 1 was the beginning of MadMay Madelinetosh challenge. I joined the group to make a sweater in the month of May. So the sweater is cast on and I've begun. I'm not making progress very quickly because of that simple pattern down the front. I always seem to be a stitch off or I start on the wrong row of the pattern after I lay it down and then pick it up again. The problem is not messing up the knitting pattern, but unknitting a few stitches with the design. I can unknit stockinette or garter stitches easily but I get so confused if I unknit the pattern stitches. I always get the yarn turned or drop part of the stitch. Hopefully, I'll get the hang of this soon because the pattern runs down the entire front of the sweater and I can't keep running to the knit shop asking for help bailing me out, especially when the shop is a half hour from home.
