A tale of woe.
This was my sweater at about 8:30 pm last night.
Can you see the problem?
Yellow marks the spot(s). I missed the cable crosses in the center panel nearly 2 repeats back. The one place you don’t ever want a mistake is in the middle of your chest. If I were wearing the sweater, the error would be right over the “girls”. Frack, frack, frickety-frack!!!!
I couldn’t just drop down the 5 stitches involved in each cable cross because of the interwoven cables – so I had to frog the entire center panel down 28 rows and reknit it.
This is my sweater as of 10:30 pm last night. The reknitting is a bit wonky in some places, but I think it will be fine after blocking. At least it didn’t take as long to reknit as I expected.
I kept kicking myself for not seeing it earlier, even though I looked at it periodically. As Sherlock Holmes said, “You see, but you do not observe”.
Yeah. I feel pretty vague. I mean Vogue. Whatever.
