There Is Not Enough* Headdesk* In The World

So, I was excited. I had finished knitting the pieces of my Whiskey sweater. I pressed the pieces as advised by the designer. I seamed the sleeves onto the sweater. I sat down and prepared to pick up stitches to knit the neckband.

"Hmmm", I thought to myself, "this looks a little weird". I proceeded to begin picking up stitches anyway. (de nile, it ain't just a river in Egypt) Ran into a roadblock immediately. The pattern read "pick up 10 stitches across top of sleeve". Ummmm, I had no top of sleeve.

I laid out the sweater carefully on the floor. The knitting inspector ran over to investigate.

I seamed the sleeves on UPSIDE DOWN. fuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
I need a drink. Of actual whiskey, I think.
