Can't believe I've only done 8 rows, yet used a whole 50g ball of Zhivago! 3200 stitches so far.
I held this up for Nathan this evening and told him it was the bottom edge of Jasmine's Birthday jumper. I could tell by his expression that he had serious doubts! lol! After all, the stitches are bunched up, even on this 120cm circular.
Unfortunately, though I was careful, I joined it in a TWIST! Yes, it's a warped little ruffle that will not grow up to be a jumper that would fit a human.
But I am not going to frog it. No, because I am going to find a way to fix it. I'm thinking of... somehow... dropping the center stitches in a rib of 3 purls, twisting the loose joins, and joining it back up. It would be a 2cm blip that looked like a seam right where a seam would have gone anyway if I wasn't knitting in the round, and it will be hidden in the ruffle anyway.
Sigh. I think that will work. No sense doing 3200 stitches again.
