Worst Co-Host Ev-ah.

Last weekend, I did two lousy rows on the Arwen sweater. I'm the worst KAL co-host in the world. At this rate, it'll be 90 degrees outside before I finish it.


Oh, and did I mention the mistake I made on the back of the Arwen cable? For some reason, it doesn't appear on the front. Strange. I'm still trying to decide if I should rip it out, which might explain the languishing. Any thoughts?

I like the colour.

I would leave the boo boo or double stitch over it. It's not going to be noticeable way down there on the back.

Hey, I thought your Arwen was grey, not blue! Did I miss something?

If the mistake is on the inside of the band, and it isn't going to show, then feh. I wouldn't worry.

The cable is reversable becasue we don't "see" the crosses on purl side. They really are crossed, but the purl is indented, and the stitch appearance doesn't show the cross as well. So, if you do a purl cross backwards, you will notice it on the back side, but not on the front.

I made this error a lot, and got into the habit of checking behind on the purl/purl crosses to make sure I had it right.

Make sense?

I wouldn't sweat that boo boo at all, it will never show. I've got a similar problem on the front cable that I will try to stitch over, but if not, I'm going to trust that it's hard to spot unless you are looking for it. And I spotted a place where I accidentally strung the yarn over a cable stitch, so one stitch has a horizontal bit of yarn covering it. It's on the inside, but unfortunately, in a place that will show when the hood is not being worn. Grrr. Somehow I doubt there's a way to fix that.

I did the same thing for the sleeve cables. I was halfway done with the sleeves when I noticed it. I thought about what to do for a few days and I didn't knit anything because I was so torn. I frogged it. I feel much better. :)

I second Beth's observation! Did your Arwen turn blue?
