I am wearing a very sad face. I was so excited with the progress I was making on the green reversible scarf. I had it almost to the half way point. I was admiring my work and then.......I saw it. I looked twice. I tried turning it around to make sure it was really there. I pulled on it........I squinted hoping it was my contacts needing being replaced. I held it up and shook it. Nope.....nothing helped. It seems that when I took the stitches off the cable needle I took them off the wrong end of the cable needle! What the heck? Am I an amateur knitter. (well actually I am)
OK, so I think............well it's not really that noticeable. No one will know but me............unless the wearer puts the scarf on with that side showing. UGH!!!! I don't want anyone to think I don't know how to do a cable! How embarrassing when they would ask the wearer where she got and and she would say my name!
I thought about it for 2 days and continued to knit on it. (like that would make the mistake go away) Finally, last night I decided that I could not live with that glaring BOO-BOO so I frogged it. Thirty rows were frogged out before I went to bed so I could sleep. I also put 3 rows back in just to make sure I didn't do it again in the same spot. (like it might be a cursed row or something)
So hopefully by my update on Sunday I will be back to my half way point. We will see.
