But sometimes you get lucky...

So I am working away on this top I am attempting to design in crochet. I wanted 160 stitches across at one point, but accidentally worked 162. I decided to leave well enough alone and leave the 162 stitches, figuring if I needed to fudge I could do it later.

On the fly, I cchanged the scallop pattern across one side because the one I had swatched would have been too ruffly for a long length. So I am scalloping along in the new pattern wondering how messy the edge is going to be because I have no idea how this is going to fit across 162 sts. And I get to the end - no stitches left over. If I had worked 160 instead of 162 I wouldn't have come out even. Sometimes you do get lucky!

For those who asked, here is the link to The Knit and Crochet Show in King of Prussia, PA in July. I expect to be hanging around most of the weekend - if you are planning on coming, drop me an email and maybe we can have a little bloggers meet-up.

No photos, I can't seem to finish anything! But I have a ton of work and four deadlines coming up so we will all just have to muddle along. BB is getting bored without modeling!
