There is a saying that there should be at least one mistake in every handmade project. Mistakes are ok, but some are less OK than others. Tonight I caught one of the less OK ones:
A cable in my honeycomb is twisted the wrong way, and I had knitted about 8 rows before I spotted it. And it’s tweed yarn, so super hard to unravel without ruining everything.
I very rarely knit cable patterns, and have never had to unpick a single cable several rows down, so this felt pretty daunting.
I’m now about 5 cm from finishing the main body before dividing for front and back, and then there’s no avoiding the difficult pattern sections anymore…
