Hi! I’m working on this sweater:
And I recently noticed that I dropped a stitch several rows back so I tinked back to that spot and I am all ready to start knitting again…except that I’m not sure how many rows I went back and I’m kind of lost. So I start counting my stitches and doing some math and realize that I have made SO MANY MISTAKES that my stitch count and my actual count are just miles and miles off. I may have forgotten to do some decreases along the line. I also think this sweater is going to be too small AND I loathe the yarn. I’m enjoying the knitting but that’s it.
This is my first sweater and I’m not ripping it out again. I had to do that three times at the start and I’m too far along now to rip back. Just for my own sanity. Do I just shove it in a bag and restart with some yarn I like or finish it and learn some lessons and give it to my Mom who will adore it, mistakes and all???
I’m not sure how to proceed here.
Thank you for any thoughts or wisdom!
