Remember when Yarn Harlot discovered that photographing the Tinks' sweaters mysteriously revealed errors imperceptible to the naked eye? Did you laugh? Did you think to yourself "oh, that Yarn Harlot"? I did. But I'm not laughing anymore.
I decided to concentrate on Bristow this weekend since Odessa's still in a time out. We rented movies and I knit and knit and knit. I even considered that I might even finish both fronts on the weekend. So naive.
Well I finished the left front, cast on for the right front and flew through to the bust increases. That's when I noticed it. Another missing yarnover (what is it with yarnovers anyway that make them so easy to forget?). What to do, what to do?
This had happened to me once on the left side but I noticed it after only a few rows and was able to ladder down and fix it. But this time, it's like more than 30 rows back? I can't ladder that far! It would end up looking worse than if I just left it. I was tired. The Oscar's were becoming a bore (it's so much less interesting when you haven't seen any of the movies!). So I put it down and decided to sleep on it.
This morning, I still didn't know what to do and not wanting to waste any more precious knitting time deliberating, I did what any normal knitter would and cast on for a new project. I don't have any baby girls to knit for (seriously, it's been years since I've even seen a baby girl!) but thought Project Spectrum would be the perfect opportunity to knit a little pink somethin' somethin' for a wee one...you know, for the gift closet?
So I started knitting the ribbed jacket from Debbie Bliss' Special Knits (it's the one on the cover) and this one is really flying. I cast on this morning and am feeling pretty good about finishing it today. No kidding. Forget what I said before about my knitting naivite. Really, I think it's a one day baby sweater!
So I took a break to photograph them both for you while the sun is still high in the sky. I wanted to show you the amazing one-day sweater in progress and ask your advice on Bristow's missed yarnover. It wasn't until I saw the photo up there in the right hand corner that I noticed them...the three missed yarnovers on the completed side!
What? I edited the photo to point them out (as if I had to...kinda glaring if you stare even for just a little while). Now what? I've got to rip. If I don't it'll bug me to no end everytime I wear the sweater. And, if I'm going to rip out 60 rows on the left front anyway, I guess I'll rip out the 30 rows on the right front too. What's and extra 30 rows? Right? I thought so ;0)
Well at least there's still the magic of the amazing one day sweater...
