A little over a week ago I graduated from law school. BAM. Juris Doctrate. Me. Earned. Done. Well… not really done at all. See, graduating law school doesn’t really mean #$@* if you don’t also pass the bar exam. The bar exam is a TWO DAY test that basically requires you to know ALLTHELAW! I’m taking a class to prepare and it’s basically resulting in 10-12 hours of work every day 7 days a week. So if you don’t see me until July 26th, that’s why.
I hated was not fond of the front of this cardigan, so I used decreases and short rows to heavily modify it. The magazine actually does not show any straight-on photos of the front, so I didn’t know I hated it until it started popping up in people’s finished projects on Ravelry. Normally I have a one-year rule: never knit anything until the pattern has been out for at least a year that way all the mistakes can be found by others and it will become readily apparent if it looks terrible on actual people. I didn’t follow this rule and cast on as soon as the magazine arrived. I was about halfway through the back before I started to realize that I hated the front.
