The sweater saga continues

Argh argh argh argh.

Yes, a sweater shouldn't be your second project, even if it's an easy beginner pattern.

About 18 inches up the back, I glanced at the RS of the sweater and found about 20 stitches of BUMP. Which made an interesting line, should I ever want to design something with interesting lines, but not now. So I ripped out two inches of stitches, capturing the row onto a smaller needle, and tried to knit over.

It looks even worse now. Blast it. Going to rerip tonight. Maybe I'll just tink this row and make sure everything is turned round the right way.

Aside from that it's going fine. Homespun is as aggravating as they say, but I seem to have gotten the hang of it, mechanics of actual knitting aside.
