I just finished my third ever project, a lace-weight scarf in the pattern Magic Moment
by Jojoland (yarn = Melody Superwash).
I have done terrible things to this scarf.
Terrible, unspeakable things. It has suffered much.
I've corrected all the mistakes I on my own that I can, and for the most part, it looks just fine now that I've mended most of what I maimed and mutilated before.
...EXCEPT for the first row (or two? Or three?) ... At one point I thought all was lost and was actually attempting to unravel the scarf from both ends because I got a knot in the yarn on the working end. (Brilliant, I know).
So I went back to the top of the scarf and started teasing out the tail. That got tedious, so I went back to the working end and poked at that some more until, voila, I untangled the knot... and kept knitting until bind-off. I'm left with an undone row or two at the top. Sometimes I think I do these thing to keep myself entertained...
So finally, we arrive at the question: CAN IT BE SAVED? Is it possible to "re-cast on?"
