I have had second thoughts about hybernating my vest. I guess it really is love. I can't turn my back on it now. I frogged the upper part and sat down and wrote out all the decreases and respective stitch count for each row so at any given time, I can easily check my work when I am knitting with distractions. I started the decreasing again and I am paying close attention to the direction I slant my decreases around the armholes which the pattern doesn't specify(quelle surprise). One of the reasons why I frogged the first upper vest. I saw some wayward slants in there...some were not there at all and everything was lopsided. This got me thinking, do patterns ever tell you which way to slant your decreases for an armhole? I perused a few patterns in a magazine and all I could find was the word 'decrease'. No specific ssk or k2tg; so I decided to make up my own mind and do what I think looks pretty. I must be getting fussy in my old age.
Here I give you a rainy day dressing up the dog picture.
