I couldn't ignore it any longer. It was time to do the shoulder shaping on the Tracery vest that I have been working on for more years than I care to recall. I just want to knit ya'll. I hate that shaping business. I followed along on a Blueprint/Craftsy class I bought ages ago because just the idea terrified me.
First I had to take all the shoulder parts and put them on a holder after binding off the steeks. That I could do.
Then......I had to individually knit each of the four shoulders separately which means PURLING in colorwork. I was in a tizzy the whole time thinking about it. The video lady said I could just keep breaking the yarn and knitting from the front but that sounded like crazy talk to me. That's just too many ends flying around.
Well now, look at that....purling in stranded colorwork is actually not as hard as it seems. It turned out just fine. I wouldn't want to do a lot of it but for a few rows it wasn't so bad. Silly me for getting so worked up about it.
