I don’t know what’s gotten into my fan (a rotating GE circa 1955 that my parents bought new), but last night it jiggled itself over next to my knitting bag and ripped the yarn tail from the cast on of my Big Bad Baby Blanket. That yarn tail was wrapped around the spindle of the fan blades and broke right off at the very corner of the blanket. Of course, I am three fourth of the way done with that thing, and the first stitches in the cast on row are slowly pulling apart as it sits there in shock from being assaulted. :help: The expression on my face must have been priceless, DH took one look and actually refrained from commenting.
I suppose my best bet is to review the video on how to insert a needle back into the stitches a row or two above the “accident,” snip the stitches below the needle, and knit back on a couple of rows the other way, but I’ve never done anything remotely like that before and I suspect I’m going to hyperventilate during the procedure.
It’s a garter stitch border, is there any hope it’ll look o.k. afterwards?
