An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I counted the stitches on my needle and was puzzled to find I had far fewer stitches than I should have done. I was sure I had increased the right number of times at the right intervals. The pattern didn't seem to have a mistake in it. Eventually I worked out that I had cast on too few stitches. Hmmm. What to do? What to do? The obvious answer was to unravel the work and begin again. But... I was never altogether sure about the three-quarter length sleeve in the pattern. Perhaps I could make the sleeve longer and incorporate the missing stitches. Yes, I think it has worked. Now to make another sleeve the same.
