I have been doing my SSKs wrong. Look at them, not leaning left at all but brazenly veering right. They mock me as they pervert my fully-fashioned shaping into zig-zaggery. They laugh at me, knowing I have not the patience nor the inclination to rip.
How has this come about? I've been thoughtlessly slipping purlwise rather than knitwise (presumably because I have acquired a brainless conviction that all slipping is done purlwise; the instructions I learned from are definitely correct). Would a non-knitter notice? I don't think so, and I hope that even a knitter would have to be hyper-critical to pick up a few faulty decrease made in dark-coloured dk-weight yarn. I am not planning on subjecting my Picovoli to that kind of inspection. I am all about forwards not backwards with this thing. That's a manifesto, my friends. It may even be a maknitfesto.
