Things You Shouldn’t Watch

They say there are two things you shouldn’t see being made: laws and sausage. Can I add one more thing to that list- cables being fixed. Last night when I was knitting I discovered a miss-crossed cable about 8 rows down. Fortunately it was one of the simple cables near the edge. This isn’t the first time I’d corrected a miss-crossed cable in knitting but this is the first time I’ve done it 8 rows down with additional crosses in between. I captured the two stitches below the last correct row and dropped my stitches. They ran down faster than one would expect with a wool yarn but this yarn is super soft so I shouldn’t have been surprised. I used the two crochet hooks I keep in my tool pouch, neither was exactly the correct size but I made it work. I crossed the first cable correctly and then completed the rows before the next cable cross. After the second cable cross I did the final plain rows and then all was right in the world. Immediately I felt a rush of relief. I didn’t even realize how tense it made me to correct this error. Now I’m back on the right path and making progress. So have you done anything new lately?

    Very impressive – like performing surgery on your knitting! I haven’t attempted anything new knitting-wise recently (unless hoarding several skeins from a recent yarn give away counts!).

  2. Bravo! A good fix, but I’m not sure if I would have been brave enough to do that.
