Oh, no!

by Nancy

How did I not notice before now??? That’s what I keep asking myself. I was getting ready for the next-to-last step on my Granny Square Crochet Vest when I noticed this enormous problem:

Granny Vest problem

The front pieces, one of which you see above on the left, are not the same height as the back piece, seen on the right. This is very, very bad. And somehow I managed not to notice until now. I looked back at the instructions and determined that yes, indeed, I had followed them and they are wrong. They instruct you to make the front pieces 6 squares tall and the back piece 8 squares tall, and that is exactly what I did. Not only that, but I was very disciplined about weaving in my ends as I went, so it’s even harder to disconnect the back squares from each other. Sigh. This is kind of how my week has been in a nutshell.

So, while watching gymnastics on TV this afternoon, I took the first steps in the undoing process for the back. I don’t think it will be finished any time soon. At least the front two pieces match each other…

    Ahhhh… This sort of thing looks so familiar, in a sewing context.

    A chicken in every pot and a seam ripper in every room. Herbert Hoover or maybe Mrs. Hoover.
