Last night I crocheted the shoulders and the sides and back of the neck of the Ribbed Lace pullover, and it feels much better now. It looks pretty much the same, but doesn't have the same sensation of collapsing around me, so I didn't take a picture.
I ripped out Jade to just below the "pickup for armhole" again, and last night during speeches at YMCA volunteer thank you night, I knitted about an inch back onto it. This time, I think I am happy. My increases line up neatly. I have the same number of stitches in each armhole, and across the back and the front. Only 4.5 inches and the stranded portion begins -- so I guess I'd better work on that chart.
And I tidied four blobs on Manhattan. If I do four a day, it will be done in 2005. Maybe that should be my goal.
