Going Rogue

I’ve been knitting away on a silky little something the past few days. It is my current auto-pilot project, something to pick up in those still moments throughout busy days, where I don’t have to worry too much about the pattern.

Evidently I could have been paying a bit more attention the past few rows, because a couple of errant yarn overs snuck in there. Oh well. Once I compensated for the change in stitch count, I just kept knitting. And it feels great!

How have you triumphed over your knitting lately? Did you fix an error? Leave one in and call it a design feature? I’d love to hear your stories.

  1. I’m finally getting over my second sock syndrome. I refuse to let it take hold of my any longer. I’m also not casting on any new projects until this one is done. My knitting godmother warned me about this syndrome and I always thought that it would never happen to me!

    What project are you working on in this post? The fibre colours are gorgeous!

  2. I knit a pattern the other day, with deer prancing around a hat. I don’t know how or when, but one deer ended up a bit more full around the middle. I refused to frog it so each row I just incorporated the one more stitch. I’m hoping nobody but me would notice. 🙂

    Love the colors on your piece!

  3. This is the Fern Neckwarmer, free on Ravelry, knit in Malabrigo silky merino. Finished object post coming soon!

  4. Such pretty yarn, you wouldn’t think it would have rogue tendencies! I usually go back and fix my mistakes, but something like an extra stitch on one side of an armhole doesn’t bother me. I just make it go away. No one is going to look that closely!

  5. I just call this “knit with love.” Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your perspective, most of my projects are “knit with love.” I made a mistake in a great cable scarf for my friend for her birthday. I held the stitches in the back rather than the front on one of the cables. Just one, silly, little cable, and didn’t notice until I was too far into it to go back. I told her it was “knit with love,” and when she sees that mistake, she remembers who gave it to her– her imperfect, but loving friend.

  6. If my knitting goes wrong it doesn’t matter how far back it is, I’ll unravel and reknit. It will stick out like a ‘sore thumb’ to me even if noone else can see it.
