When Knitting Attacks: (28:04)
Gigi thought she had figured out bead placement on the French Cancan. She didn’t like beads in the
chain of knitted stitches next to the lace. 
Gigi swatched for a fade cowl, then she swatched again with fingering yarn, because she had pulled out
the first fingering swatch, put the needles away and not taken notes. She repeatedly pulled out the toe
decreases for a VITNB sock.

Gigi finally found the Carli cardigan and the zipper.  She put it on the dress form and pinned the zipper in
place, and then decided to machine sew it.
