I've been knitting away on my friend's sweater. (The Silver Belle pattern by Debbie Bliss - It's for Judy, come and see her wear it in the library). I have the pattern pretty much 'in my head' so I figured I would do a few rows while I watched Agents of Shield with my daughter the other night.
Sounds like a good idea, right? Well it wasn't. I got too engrossed in the show (trying to figure out if Agent Ward is on the good side, or the bad side), and I didn't pay attention to my knitting . . . and I didn't realize it until the next morning.
See my mistake . . . I did one row of the pattern twice . . . (it must have been when Agent Ward was taking his lie detector test). So I will unravel those 6 stitches, break out my trusty crochet hook and fix my mistake.
I will do this with the TV off!!
Moral of the story? 'Read' your knitting. Especially if you are working cables. Take a look after every few rows to make sure everything is turning, twisting and lining up the right way! It's a lot easier to fix mistakes that aren't too far down.
Also, don't knit when you are watching Agents of Shield.
Until next time, keep your nose in a book or your fingers in fiber.
