I thought I was in the home stretch!

November 18, 2008

GUSSETS! HOW DID I FORGET THE GUSSET? Here I was, merrily knitting my way to a stocking when I was faced with utter confusion. How did I end up with ten too many stitches on my super pretty knitting needles? I was at toe shaping, the last and final step before completion.

Don’t worry five inches ago, I should have knitted a gusset. FIVE INCHES! GUSSETS! AAAGH!!

I guess I should be grateful. I did manage to undo all the necessary stitches and add in the gusset without dropping a single stitch. That’s a first.

    What the heck is a gusset! and this was probably my christmas gift!

    In regards to the “yikes”, finding yarn bag patterns is beyond my creative capabilities. Although, I was thinking you could go “green” and use plastic bags (again).

    Stac has a good idea for a sell-able item. Ask her-I bought her some supplies today.
