View Full Version : I did it!

I just fixed a problem in my knitting without ripping! I'm making the Thuja Socks (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTthuja.html) from Knitty for my sister, and they're in a seed-stitch rib, meaning that every fourth stitch is in seed stitch. On examination, I discovered that one of my seed-stitch columns had skipped a row, or I had knit instead of purled. Not wanting to frog, I just unraveled that stitch down to below the mistake, and painstakingly fixed each row. And now it looks great! :cheering: :cheering:

Sorry, no pictures, my camera is still packed from my honeymoon. :oops:

:thumbsup: Nicely done! That's a trick worth learning--definitely better than frogging!

WAY TO GO!!!!! That is so exciting when you fix a mistake without having to rip it all out. It is almost like winning the lottery. Not that I would know anything about that.

Knitting hoorah to you. Feels good, doesn't it take power over that willful yarn?
