Yesterday was a lovely day - warm and sunny - and I wore my new Badminton jumper. It looked good and felt cool and comfortable. I went to the Knit and Natter session at my local yarn shop and finished the back of my Marion Foale cardigan, and when I got home I sprayed it with water and pressed it lightly, which made the knitting look a lot more even. (The edges are still curling in quite a bit - it isn't quite as shaped at the waist as it appears.)
And then I noticed that I had made a mistake in knitting the Badminton jumper, towards the top of one sleeve, in the middle. I had offset one of the vertical lines of moss stitch by one stitch for the last dozen or so rows.
I am so annoyed with myself. How did I manage to sew the sleeve into the armhole in the first place without noticing such a glaring mistake?
Knitting is very intense. No room for mistakes. I think I would find it stressful, possibly have a knitting-related nervous breakdown.ReplyDelete
I am with you, I would have ripped out the sleeve and corrected that column. Once I see a mistake, it bugs me too much not to correct it. Lovely sweater!ReplyDelete
