You and Stephanie are very clever knitters!

Carole

Dude, I can't see the error.

Julie

Genius eh? That post totally saved me when I was making Jack's Aran for Jason.

Lisa

Wow. I don't think I could rip back that far either. Hope to see those finished pictures soon!

margene

Smart you are! Smart!

stacey

that is brilliant!!! i'd do the same thing. i couldn't deal with ripping back 100 rows!

I remember reading that post back then too. It was eye-opening. I also tucked it away for later use, but so far haven't had need to use it. I'm sure my day will come.

Good for you, never rip out if you can fix it some other way!
(from the abc along)

Lorette

There's no way I'd rip that far either, unless I absolutely had to. I just love that color.

amanda

well two cheers for your intrepid bravery! i'd have left it alone...just the thought of tackling that makes my knees shake in fear :)

Count me amongst the unseeing. I don't see the problem. Maybe I'd notice it if I saw what the other ones are supposed to look like, but just looking at the one, I don't see anything wrong.

It took me a long time to find out where you had missed a cable cross-over, but when I finally found it I realised that one of the reasons why I hadn't seen the "problem" right away is that I really like the effect it produces, kind of an elongated diamond shape. Had I found such a "mistake" in my swatch before starting the sweater, I'd have turned it into a design element and would have knit the whole sweater like that. Yes, I like your "mistake version" of the cable that much!

Josiane

Oh, seeing the note you have added, I realise I was completely wrong! The error is not at all where I thought it was... I sincerely thought that the part you circled was part of the pattern, it was so nicely placed by the middle of the braided cable!
What I had thought was the error is actually at the bottom of that braided cable: the bottom point seems a bit elongated compared to the other braids, so I thought maybe that was where you had missed a cable cross-over. It may be the angle at which the picture was taken that tricked my eye into seeing something different there...

Julie

Too funny you should post this...I did the very same thing this week and saved myself a cable headache. :o) What did we do before the internet?

Karen

You are such a clever knitter! I could never rip back that much work either.

Ruinwen

Wow! Patience as well as ingenuity! :)

Leslie Wind

Perhaps you should now call yourself the
"untwisted sister"

Chris

Ouch! Doing that correction has to be one of those deeply satisfying knitterly accomplishments. :)
