My progress report.: Well, I knit a swatch so that I could practice the cable fix that Amber mentioned. I fully understand how to fix it in a mis-crossed cable situation, but what I can't figure out is, how to put a cable in that wasn't there in the first place?
I next tried letting a few rows ladder down in that spot, and seeing if I could fix a cable that way, which I could. But it took so long to do, that it would be faster just to rip it out and start over.
But, I am not going to do that yet. I am going to use this as a learning situation. I am going to knit another swatch, and then cut the area, and see if I can knit in the cable the way it should be.
If that doesn't work, then I guess I'll just frog it back to the mistake
and start over from there.
I really appreciate everyone's replies, it gives me hope to keep trying!
