I was griping about my second Liesl on New Year’s Eve. I’d just started the first sleeve, a couple of rows in, when I discovered I had dropped two stitches. It wasn’t the most complicated pattern in the world, but still, it was sort of lacy and I was in the dark watching TV and well, the whole operation went pear-shaped with a capital P. Before you knew it those dropped stitches were unravelling and I had a horrible looking mess.
Little did I know I was talking to a mathematician-come-champeen knitter. ‘I’m away for a week, but I’ll fix it for you next Thursday’. Wow. That was last night and now I’m back on track. My second Liesl will be finished in a few days’ time. I’m so happy. Thanks, Marjorie!
