So, I'd gotten a good ways into my twentyten cardigan over the weekend and laid it out on the table to check my progress. I folded it over to see how tidily the button band was slanting across the front when I noticed something odd:
Yeah, I'd put the pocket in the wrong place. The directions call for putting markers at the points that will be the dividing points for the fronts and back, which I did, and each of the button bands, which I didn't do because I find slipping markers to be an unnecessary aggravation and I can count to seven, which is the number of stitches in the band. So when the directions called for starting the pocket "after the second marker," I didn't use the right second marker as the placement point. And it bit me in the ass.
I spent a few minutes trying to convince myself that a pocket on the back of the cardigan was fun! It's cheeky! And modern! But that was all just a crock of ridiculous nonsense and I ripped back to where I went wrong and am back on track now.
