Hitting a Rolling Stone in the road

Yeah, not really. Just a bump. I was merrily going along working on my Celtic, when I saw this.

Just for reference, this is what it should look like.

So, knowing that it would drive me nuts to leave it that way, I had to do this.

Scary looking isn't it? Well I fixed it and it now looks better.

I finished up the upper front and picked up and finished the neckband.

Then I joined the upper front and upper back. Included the stitches for the underarm and did a few rows in the round.

Pretty cool progress, huh? It's getting there. I may finish this sweater yet.

Oh and as far as the Rolling Stone reference. Look what I found.

Sorry about the grainy look. It is bright red so my camera didn't want to show it. This book goes for $40.00. I found it for $3.94. Cool huh? And on the actual cover, it has the logo embossed into it.

It has loads of cool pictures. I am sure it will be an interesting read.

I think if I had hit a "rolling stone" like that, I would have chucked it on the shelf and worried about it in a few years. Brava to you for being brave and fixing it. I'm in awe.
