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.
You did the right thing. You would not have been happy with the final product!
Boooo! But you’ll be so happy once it’s done!
