The pattern says to cut extra stitches on the front of the body and the collar before starting the collar. Every time I anticipate cutting my work, I feel a bit queasy about the idea. So, I decide to only cut the extra stitches around the collar and finish it before cutting into the extra stitches on the front. After the fact, I’m thinking I should just get over my fear of stitches unraveling. It’s really no big deal when working with Shetland yarn. Working the collar with the front open would have been much easier.
Time to start thinking about the next project
I’ve been engrossed in this project for so long that it’s odd to even think about starting another one. Several months back I was going to start a sock project but never manage to get it started. I’ve been promising to make fingerless gloves, so I guess that will be next.
