When Bad Things Happen to Good Sweaters
See, I have this sweater I made for myself about a year ago. It's made of organic undyed wool and I love it to pieces.

Then yesterday it met a cup of coffee.

The good news is, only the ribbing at the bottom is stained.

The bad news is, that's the cast on edge.

I WILL NOT dye the whole sweater in coffee. That's out of the question. I look horrible in brown.

So my question is, is there a way (even if it's a big pain) to unravel the ribbing and put on a new one? I remember reading an offhand reference to something like that somewhere in Elizabeth Zimmerman, but I can't find it now...
