So, Ingrid, after I run a life line on both sides of the row I'll cut through, can I just join new yarn and bind off like usual? Will it matter if I bind off RS or WS on the row that goes opposite of the way it was knitted? Pardon if this seems obvious, but I've never cut knitting in half but still wanted to keep it in tact.
Then again, there are numerous errors in this thing from way back when there wasn't internet to learn the neat tricks to fix boo boos without frogging. And I wasn't knitting continental either then so to frog really hurt. Put it this way... there's NO WAY those cables are gonna line up next to each other and the length of the 3 completed panels are off. My brother doesn't care though... he's such a sweet brother.
Jim, my brother, must like the clock too since he seems to be changing the decor to match it. I haven't seen it in person since he lives in Tampa and I'm in Detroit.
Oh, yes, I think 16 years is right on the money... been married darn near 15 and I know I started it before that, but not too long before. The original yarn was $1.29 for a 3½ oz skein of Wintuk. Looks like an old Kmart sticker... :lol: That was probably before they used bar codes to ring items up. I realized some 5 or 6 years ago that the skeins of purple I had for the last panel was not the right shade which was a big factor in why it was never finished.
