I can't believe it! I'm making this (http://www.knittingdaily.com/freepatterns/pullovers/Welcome_Back_Old_Friend_Sweater77-1.html) sweater, and I crossed one of my cables the wrong way and didn't notice till 2 rows later. I actually managed to take those 4 rows down, recross the cable, and take the rows back up without having to frog! :)

Atta girl! Did you post this sweater a few weeks ago when you were thinking about making it? If so, what yarn did you decide on? (I think there was a thread asking what yarn to make this out of, but I don't remember who posted it!)

Thanks! Yeah, it was terrifying!
I probably did post it a few weeks ago... I'm using Lamb's Pride worsted in Victorian Pink. I love the yarn, and the cables are so gorgeous! It's my first cable project and it's going faster than I thought it would.

Way to go!

I still have to do that feat. I just tell people its like an Amish quilt. They put in a deliberately noticeable flaw because no human is perfect. So... I tell them... I'm just being perfectly imperfect ;)

Yay for you!:yay:

That is a beautiful sweater, and you must feel like a million bucks having fixed a boo-boo like that. I would!

Great job :thumbsup:

I have used that excuse too, and believe me, if I had noticed it more than 2 rows later, I would have used it again! :)

I still consider myself a 'new' knitter- I haven't even been knitting a year yet, so this is a big thing for me. :)

I can do a cable but if I make a mistake, I'm not sure I would be able to fix it well. Maybe I'll get there one day....

Great job, and that's a beautiful pattern! Please post a pic when you're through!
