Bad Days and Worse Days

The saga of That Damn Vest continues. I keep picking it up and putting it down - a habit which has come back to bite me in the ass. But I will finish this sucker if it kills me and now I have an added incentive because I want to make myself a fall sweater and I won't allow myself to cast on for it until this is DONE!!!

So last night I sat down with it again. There were only about 2-3 inches left to knit on the sides of the deep V neck but I had a bad feeling and decided to lay the finished back and the front on the floor and compare them. Sure enough I noted a hump-like section near each of the armpits on the front piece. *insert many profanities here* Apparently one of the times I picked the vest up I mistakenly increased every other row instead of each row. Hence the humps.... and the subsequent frogging. All the way back to the beginning on the very deep V.

So. Not. Happy.

Thankfully this guy had a worse day than I did yesterday and this amuses me to no end.

Cheater !!!

The sign reads in full " I cheated and this is my punishment". Apparently his wife had him stand with the sign for 2 hours yesterday morning at a very busy intersection in my area. Tysons Corner if you're familiar. Ouch!

I've said it before but I'll say it again - just knit that damn vest! Love the guy with the sign. But is this supposed to help his marriage? Oy.
