Lesson 4: A Car Accident
In the illustration for this chapter there is a motorbike and a policeman: things you see quite often in the Tour de France. The Haute Tricot jumper has had 'un accident' itself. Just as I had finished all the knitting, I saw an errant purl stitch: sirens sounded, triple '0's were rung, mad excursions on motor bikes were thought about, and arms waved wildly about as if an officer of the law was directing ill-placed stitches. I marked the stitch, which is of course right in the front, with some 'Ming' coloured wool. I am going to unRavel the cast off, drop the stitch down, change the Purl to a Knit and then pick the stitch up again and cast off once more. Then, just the sleeves to be sewn up and the neckband to knit and the Jumper: She is finished!!! Lundi is the day then!!!
