Last night I was happily knitting away while Sarah was in her youth orchestra rehearsal. I’ll never understand people who get impatient whilst having to wait. To have three hours to myself with a giant coffee and listening to music with a lapful of knitting? That is my definition of absolute bliss. I’m looking forward to more Monday night rehearsals! However, next week I’ll bring a project that requires zero concentration.
The next four stitches to come should have been purled the row before and were shouting at me, “YOU CAN”T IGNORE THESE – IF YOU LEAVE THIS MISTAKE IT WILL BOTHER YOU FOREVER AND EVER………….”
Anyone who has knit the full size BT Umaro pattern knows that it’s just about a billion stitches per row and the thought of unpicking it made me want to weep. Google to the rescue, because surely there was a way to fix it without unpicking it?? There was, and a Youtube video has set me back on track in about 5 minutes. The video is at the top, you may want to bookmark it – it was a genius little crochet hook hack that turned my frown upside down.
Edited to add….. I’ve just gotten to the end of the row and discovered that I transposed the pattern repeat over by 6 stitches and didn’t notice so now I have to unpick the whole row anyway.
Joining up with Ginny today 🙂
