WIP: Gray (Black, actually) Rustic Celtic scarf
from this book.

I put it down one year ago because I was making it for a friend with whom I had a falling out and because I found a miscrossed cable. I found this website that shows how to fix it without frogging ten rows.

But I'm leery... I'm more of any unknitter than I am a frogger anyway. If no one has any advice by tomorrow afternoon, I'll be on the sofa watching the NFL playoffs while I unknit and try again. I wouldn't wear it myself with that spot, let alone give it to someone else.

Ya know I don't think it looks too bad but I wouldn't frog the whole thing either, I would use that website to fix the booboo.

I think it looks great so far - lovely pattern!

I hope you can get it fixed some how! You might want to put a life line in when you do get it fixed so frogging won't be as painful if you have to rip back again!!!

Thanks, y'all!

I can't stand it. Gonna rip out those 10 rows about 10 minutes from now, right after I type up the line-by-line instructions so that I don't lose my place again within the "repeat from" ones in the book.

edit: in other news, the do-over went very well. I'm up to row 72. I watched both NFL games and The Brothers Grimm while I fiddled around with it.

I have always tried to copy you, haven't I? Remember when I used to try to be "one of the girls" when you had pajama parties? I thought you were all SO COOL!

I'm having such a hard time choosing a project out of that book. The designs are all so BEAUTIFUL! (I have another Jane Davis book that I love too - Beautiful Embroidered and Embellished Knits.)

My favorite designs are:
Fanned Rib Scarf p. 58
Classic Cable Scarf p. 64
Aran Style Scarf p. 66
Lacy Leaves Shawl p. 76
Winter Mountains Scarf p. 78
Flower Embroidered Scarf p. 90
Tapered Ruffles Scarf p. 122

My little sister turned me on to this website low those many months ago. But she is off at college now and too busy for her old big sis.

I am embarrassed to say that I couldn't see the mistake? I have a bad eye for these things in photos.
