As I worked on my second cuff today (on the dreaded double pointed needles) I didn’t notice till about three rows later that I had knitted where I should have pearled!!! :shock: After calming myself down, and talking to myself for a bit, I decided I could perform some sort of simple surgery to fix this without having to unknit it back to the mistake…
So I took out three rows of just that stitch…no luck fixing it. Then came the fourth…still having problems. Then I took out the fifth…I hemmed and I hawed and said choice words under my breath and then decided I should just get out what I call my knitting bible. Low and behold…I did it!!! I actually fixed it!!! I was thrilled beyond belief! Had I been sitting w/my back not to the supervisor today, I could have looked on this site and probably saved myself all sorts of grief, but she is a good sneaker upper and I was not in the mood to be lectured.
I was so happy when my relief came in because she is the one who taught me to knit…I felt just like a little kid giving her mom a pretty picture!
pat, the so-so surgeon.
