WHY THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "NO-BRAIN KNITTING" FOR ME
You are free to laugh as much as you like. This is the almost-finished Fascination circular sweater. The instructions were a bit vague on the subject of how many stitches I was supposed to be working on when I got to the collar, so I blithely decreased away and switched to smaller needles for the roll-neck, completely forgeting what a BIG HEAD I have. (Seriously--it's enormous. Can't fit into the average hat. Every so often I catch my mother looking at me and shaking her head--apparently it was large even at birth.)
I'll spare you the choice language I used when I discovered my mistake. Being a stubborn, hard-to-keep-down type of person, I frogged the collar back to the neck decreases, used larger needles, and increased about eight stitches before knitting the rest of the way. The result? Still a bit snug, but at least I can see daylight. No photo yet--I'll get someone at work to snap one tomorrow or Tuesday.
