I started knitting a Jerry the Musical Monkey yesterday, but it went horribly wrong. Laddered like crazy. I don’t really have any techniques for stopping ladders except switching stitches around and trying to keep my tension even. I’m starting again today, on different needles. The monkey will have to go on hold, though, when I get to go down to my LYS and by swap monster yarn! The pattern and yarn will be kept top secret for now, but I’m excited to get going. Unfortunately the shop is closed on Mondays, or it would already be a WIP.
