Fortunately by Wednesday morning my brain was functioning a bit better, mostly because I knew we were heading home, so I cast on one more time and figured out that I needed to slip with the yarn in front, and that I could use different colors of stitch markers to clue me into which side I was working. Soon we were on the road and I settled in for hours of knitting. I hadn't bothered with a swatch for this project as I had recently finished another project using this yarn and had a good idea of my gauge, but when I finished the collar and started on the body I felt the fabric loosening up and knew that my gauge was off. When I thought about it, it made sense as I was knitting back and forth and the other project had been done in the round, and I always knit a little tighter when I knit in the round. Fortunately I was knitting with my Addi clicks, so I simply switched out my needles for a set one size smaller and continued on my merry way.
