WIP Wednesday: *Head/Table*

So on Monday evening I finally picked up the cardigan again to work on it. My elbow and shoulder have felt much better, though to be honest, I think the problem is the Pocket Frogs on my phone equally with the knitting. Anyway, Monday evening at Knit Night I worked on the ribbing of at the bottom of the sweater. It’s coming along nicely and I completed the last row and was ready to bind off when I pulled the yarn from the ball and spotted it. A knot! I was too defeated to carry on at that point. I either have to take out one row and bind off or knit another row and then bind off. I don’t want to bind off with a fresh bit of yarn. Damn knot!

The cardigan is the Basic Seamless Crewneck cardigan. The yarn is Ella Rae Classic in color 12. The frustration is my own.

    I hate knots too. But I don’t like to tink either…
    Glad to hear your elbow and shoulder are better! 🙂

    could you do a spit splice??? it looks as if that is 100% wool, which will felt/splice well. Just a thought….I hate tinking, too!!!!


  3. Pumpkin says:

    Usually I can deal with knots, but at a bind off point? That is quite a pickle you’ve got yourself in there, I sympathize. I really hope you don’t have to rip it back, you are so close!


  4. Lisa says:

    Knots are so annoying, especially when they appear right at the end. Is there any way at all you can just go one more row? Would it make a huge difference? I hope that you figure it out because you are so close!


  5. Vivianne says:

    Just bind off with the knot in it, and use a crochet hook to tuck the little ends away 🙂

    Spit splice is your friend!! I say spit splice and knit one more row and then bind off. Can’t wait to see it done!


  7. Kate says:

    how about spit splice? or a russian join?


  8. Regula says:

    It’s snowing on your blog. Lovely! I hate knots. What did you do?


  9. Janet says:

    I hate knots too and they always seem to pop up at the worst time.


  10. Michelle says:

    Stupid knot! On a high note, the ribbing looks amazing! I bet you’re eager to get this one off the needles!


  11. Oh noes! I hate knots! I would splice it and knit an extra row, as Chrisknits suggested!


  12. Charlotte says:

    Oh no! What an awful point to hit a knot… Good luck with it. Splicing might work as others have suggested! Thanks for stopping by my page and commenting!

    I wish I had the patience to knit sweaters… I always find myself making toys and small things. Love the snow on your blog and I too hate the knots. I would do another row instead of taking one out. I always get jumpy when my work comes off the needles even for a moment

    Knots are the worst!! What did you wind up doing? The color is amazing and I think it goes great with that pattern.


  15. YarnyDragonfly says:

    I love how your ribbing looks! Stupid knot!!! Remind me not to use that yarn…


  16. Kepanie says:

    That is such a pain to come across. Can you do a double knot join or something?
