Can you spot the mis-crossed cable? Just below and to the left of the center of the photo. There’s a left cross where it should be a right cross.
I really need to learn to look at my knitting more often, especially with such a heavily cabled piece. This is the SECOND miscrossed cable I found. The other one was even farther down the piece and has already been fixed. I took care of that this morning while I was out in the garden watching the birds, where I saw my first hummingbird of the year! It came by a couple of times to check out the feeders and flowers.
It’s been a great bird year so far. Besides the return of the jays, we had a special treat this year – a Lazuli Bunting! The Pontiff got a photo, but from quite a distance and with his phone, so it’s a pretty grainy photo:
Normally these birds like more rurual, shrubby areas, so it was exciting to see one in the heart of the city.
I was able to get a somewhat better photo of a Lesser Goldfinch (what a sad name for such a sweet little bird!) – we have lots of these cuties at the feeders:
Watching and listening to the birds made fixing the first cable mistake a little easier to deal with. After taking care of a few chores and errands, I’ll go back outside and tackle the second cable.
But the good news on the sweater is that this is the last repeat before I split the body for the armscyes. Since the sleeves are already done, that means I just have the front and back of the upper chest to finish!
