I am just as guilty as the next teacher of “inventing” reality to make a good lesson come together. But this time the reality was all too real.
Today’s class began with:
After knitting 33% of the picot border the yarn I have left wraps around the remote control 86 times. After knitting 40% of the border the remaining yarn wraps around the remote control 75 times. Will I have enough yarn to complete the border?
The answer, of course, is not enough… so out come my lovely picots and I try again with a bindoff that uses less yarn. How annoying. So much for being done with this project today.
I’m in good company, Grumperina is calculating how much yarn is left today too!
