As it turns out, when you lose track of your pattern because you’ve been knitting on the run for days and then you tack on EIGHTY stitches, willy nilly, into the fifth last row of the bodice section of an Olearia, you do sort of notice. Not that I thought you wouldn’t. Look closely. At the exuberantly gathered third gather section bit. Ahem.
In a previous lifetime I would have ripped it all back and started again. Lately I’ve decided life is too short. Instead the kid is under strict instruction to keep moving, to make like a blur, so nobody notices.
Which apparently really works, because until we saw the pics, neither of us noticed that the kid was blurring about on the trampoline, wearing an Olearia inside out.
So here you have an Olearia inside out and upside down.
PS. You can find the Olearia pattern here.
PPS. A confession? It wasn’t just a case of eighty stitches. Through sheer laziness, this take on the Olearia wafted even further from the pattern than this earlier one. Probably best if you go see what it’s supposed to look like.
