I just started a sweater for my husband. After casting on three different times because I mis-judged… many things, and then having to frog the first row… I’ve finally gotten the second row of ribbing done.
Why all the trouble just getting it cast on and two rows of ribbing done? Because I was cheap and stupid and got the wrong kind of glasses for bifocals and therefore cannot properly read directions or count stitches because the bifocals are basically NOT there. I’ve had a new prescription for almost a year now… and STILL have not bought new glasses, because I keep forgetting.
So I just called to make my appointment for my eye doctor and I will not leave there until I have bought the proper sort of glasses that I need since I read and knit almost constantly.
No more frogging. It took me nearly half and hour to get back to my cast on row and start over. Now I have an enormous headache.
