that must have been one of the comments on my report card as a grade school student - probably more than once. I know I got a lot of "susan disrupts other students." I wasn't so good at paying attention back then. and I'm not so good now either. case in point:
chart A. A. not chart B, like someone might believe is the logical conclusion when working the first part of this pattern. someone was probably thinking "I think I'm going to practice chart B now so that when I have to do it for reals, I'll have a good handle on things." yes. there was quite a bit of rippage. not something someone is not familiar with. good news, though. when I took it off the needles, I tried it on, and it does fit. it is, indeed, stretchy enough to fit over my massive, rhino-esque legs.but no worries, cuz it's friday! and I really do love the pattern. it's so intuitive (especially if you actually are smart enough to do the right part at the right time, probably). and it's pretty. kinda makes me want to eat fish, just like when I visit the aquarium.
