Off I go searching for errata and possibly even feeling a little cocky once it seems no one else has noticed the mistake. So odd that I'd be the only person who has noticed! It does not matter that it's 3am when I get to the heel and find out I'm missing stitches. Or that my nerves are a bit off considering the oral surgery I'm undergoing in about twelve hours. Or that I have scheduled several haircuts before the surgery when I was well aware I'd be unable to drink the coffee needed to get through the morning. Obviously it's the pattern, such a silly and wrong pattern. Wait, what's that weird bulge in the lacey bit?
It sounds ridiculous but I do remember where I was when the mistake happened. At that moment a pumpkin tinged variation happened and I was so distracted by this- coupled with the night out I was returning from on the boisterous red 'el'- that I double decreased. 'Lo and behold the two stitches that magically disappeared while I was scrambling about with the iPod and protesting to not have any change to spare on a Sunday at midnight.
Depending on how the healing process goes down, I've got both major projects on the table. Once the cardigan is finished, I'll be jumping headfirst into the next garment 'Panelled Effect Lady's Jumper'.
