lace and cables… and mistakes

A (very) short update on the sweater I’ve started.

Pretty much immediately after my post about it, I located an error, and because I’m a perfectionist, I couldn’t just fudge an extra stitch or two and ‘let it go’.  Oh no. I wound up ripping out several rows and have just nicely gotten back to the point where I was before.  I’m not a fast knitter.  Kinda goes without saying, I guess.

But at least now I know it’s right.  Small consolation, but I’ll take it. 🙂

    You did the right thing. I had started a aran afghan as my 3rd project- self taught, and a Fair Isle was my second- and after the first foot of the panel, I ‘got it’, but I kept going and finished the panel. The top 2/3rds looks just right, but I couldn’t live with the beginning of it. Ripped out the whole thing and didn’t end up doing it again. It taught me a lot though. Keep going for the results you want, because your results are wonderful!

    • My, my! That poor sweater has languished for months now. Maybe I’ll get back to it someday. Like you said: It’s taught me a lot… even if I never do get back to it. Thanks for commenting!

    If you had left it, the mistake would have bothered you every time you saw the sweater! Really glad to hear you are getting back to doing some handwork. I know it is maddening sometimes to not be able to do everything we used to be able to do!
