It has been a dark, rainy, stay in the house sort of day here in Ohio, so I spent most of it knitting my first sleeve of my CPH.

When I was more than half way done, I read the pattern for about the millionth time and realized that I wasn't increasing enough. I was only adding a new stitch to the end of the rows instead of the beginning AND the end. I had to frog the whole thing alllll the way back to the ribbing. Very depressing....I haven't ever had to rip that much out before on anything, but I really want to be able to wear this sweater!

Thanks for listening to me whine!! ;}
