But why would I read the pattern???

Please tell me this happens to others?

I was knitting away on Sedum last night and was all happy with myself when I got to the armholes.  I went back and counted how many stitches I had - what?  How could I be way over on stitches in one area and way under in another?

Back to the pattern to investigate.  Turns out one little sentence "Increase at the beginning and end of each row as well as before and after each stitch marker" - well I missed the increase at either side for like 40 rows.....

Suffice to say, I ended my night ripping 6 inches of sweater out.... boooo!

I am back at it tonight with hope of better results.

Lesson learned again.... read the DAMN pattern :)
