I had happily started Fafner and knit along on the plane and last evening.
Then I looked carefully. Two hours later, I am still at 18 cm. The only difference is that I removed the extra cable from the left front.
Yep, after almost signing about the dragon to myself (and not doing the extra increases on the left front) I calmly had knit in a cable. Only about 10 cm to rip out and reknit, carefully row by row but still. I will smooth it out a bit more when I am farther up the body.
