Sometimes, I'm a Bit Slow
Or in the Hamtramck vernacular, I can be a liddle tick. So, I cast on 12 stitches for a top down hat, put 4 stitches on each of 3 needles, joined in the round and knit 1 row. So far, so good. Row 2 instructed me to *K1, M1* and repeat from * to * for a total of 18 stitches.
Now I know I'm not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but come on! For every stitch I knit, I make one. How often does 12 x 2 equal 18?
It's a well established fact around here that I demonstrate perseveration behaviors that aren't always healthy. The question here is, do I throw in the towel now, or continue on my quest to finish a project where the designer has evidently flunked 2nd grade math?
Meh. Think I'll go have a beer and think about it for a bit.
