Last night, I had a finished sweater. With just ends left to weave in before blocking, I had just about reached the finish line on my Newsom cardigan. Then, this morning, while weaving in ends, I noticed a tension problem at one edge that made it look like there was a hole in the knitting. No amount of futzing with the problem made it look right. It was, of course, right on the front edge of the cardigan. I knew I wouldn’t be happy unless I frogged 2″ of garter stitch I had knit at the end of the sweater to get back past the problem spot. That 2″ took me a long time. I did all I could to avoid it, but it was inevitable, I had to frog.By the end of my frogging, I had these four little balls of yarn, and 2″ of garter stitch ahead of me, so I got started…again.
I feel like I have knit this sweater at least twice at this point (all of my own doing, my own mistakes, the pattern is great). It’s a good thing I think I’m going to love this sweater and be able to wear it all the time because that’s the only thing that will make up for all of this frogging.
