Greetings and Dear Cynthia,
Well, it sounds like you've **inherited** your stash aquisition tendencies. I imagine that "fighting" these tendencies is very similar to fighting high cholesterol -- there are some things you can change, but a large part of it is programmed into your genes. Well, I guess you have to make the best of what you've been given :-)
Thanks to those of you who kindly commented that you weren't able to pinpoint on which row I reversed the way I was carrying the yarn on my Sapporo.
The arrow marks the row in which I started carrying the black yarn in my right hand, and the light yarn in my left (dominant) hand. Since nobody said anything about it jumping out at her/him, I decided I'm not going to worry about it. ("Perfect" is the enemy of "good enough".)
I finished the first sleeve for the Sapporo. The pattern says to work a purl stitch at the end of each row, with increases periodically on each side of that purl stitch. So, though this sleeve was knit entirely in the round, it appears to have a "seam" along the length of it. I wasn't sure I'd like it at first, but now I really do. Also, note the reverse stockinette at the very top of the sleeve which will be the inside facing to cover the seam after the sleeve is sewn into the body of the sweater.The second sleeve is well under way, though not very exciting knitting...
...and so, the Dishrag O Rama continues...Hey, the Badgers made it to the second round of the NCAA basketball tournament! That means about two hours of solid knitting time during the game tomorrow!
