Well, little Isabel finally made it into the world Wednesday morning shortly after midnight and I have yet to finish the monkey jumper I was making her. Why? you might ask -- well look at this picture, do you notice anything missing?
How about now when you can compare the front with the back?
Yes, I forgot to make the decreases for the sleeves on the front. I had this sneaky suspicion that it was an "at the same time" direction but I failed to believe that I might have to start the decreases before I was done with the monkey. So, I finished the monkey and realized I have to pull out the last couple of inches and reknit them. I haven't been able to face this fiasco so I have been casting on new projects just to avoid pulling out intarsia. But now that the baby has made her entrance to the world (although somewhat reluctantly as she held out for an extra week, an induction and still they had to go with the Cesarean) I had better suck it up and stop monkeying around.
