This Sweater is Cursed

I've been spending my little blogging hiatus going to Christmas parties, being sick and working feverishly on Dad's sweater. Sunday I managaed to finish the sleeves, attach them and start the the shoulder shaping. Last night I was one repeat away from finishing the shaping and I realized that I had misread the pattern (ok sweater not cursed, I just can't read) and I have to rip back everything from the white line up.

I nearly cried last night when I noticed. Carl made me put down my knitting and step away. I woke up this morning to learn that I could save 7 rows more than I thought I could last night. I threw in a safety line and now I'm going to frog. I thought I was going to have this done by Christmas but now I'm just not sure.

good luck! a sweater is a lot of work! Did you read the Yarn Harlot's posting about knitting for gifts/deadline? Apparently much cursing and alcohol is required!
