Knitting Crisis

I put the stocking down for a bit of peaceful shawl knitting. I hadn’t even gotten through a row when I discovered I’d dropped a stitch about 8 rows back- a center make 1. Not an easy spot to fix or fudge. So I’ll be over here tinking back about 4000 stitches. This is going to take a while…

    So much for the peaceful shawl knitting. Recently I got snagged on two double decreases for EZ’s adult surprise jacket because I apparently forgot to slip stitches over the k2tog. My solution was to just k2tog in a random spot. I suppose the increases can’t be fudged the same way. Thanks for reminding me to double increase with care.

  3. I just cringed at the very thought for you. I once restarted a shawl just so I didn’t have to tink it.

  7. As animator and The Simpsons creator Matt Groening would put it, this calls for an (Annoyed Grunt). (In other words, “D’oh!” as represented in the scripts.)

    Seriously, though, that sounds incredibly frustrating and hopefully you’ll get it right the second time around.

  9. D’oh! Hope it goes quickly and easily!


  10. I can barely fathom tinking 4,000 stitches. I’d probably spend as much time as that would take trying to figure out a way NOT to have to tink that much. Onward!

    OUCH! If it helps, last night I frogged my sweater sleeve and started over, not nearly 4000 stitches, but at least you aren’t alone.😢Crying with you!

    oh no! Did you think about dropping just the concerned stitches back and working your way back up there with a crochet hook? Or would that be too complicated?

    Other people would say leave it but you would always know it was there!
