Duh. . .

I thought I would block my latest knit before I sewed the side seams. Something was wrong...
I knit one less pattern repeat than necessary, then added the bottom and neck ribbing and didn't discover my mistake until I took it out of the sink and spread it on the towel.
Double Duh.
This was such an avoidable error. Hrumph.
I will unknit the collar, and the bottom ribbing and add the last design repeat and it will all be OK.

Do you think it looks a bit lopsided?

Here's a little puppy distraction.

  1. Just a brooche...short side up e voila

  2. Well you know Melody, I have seen lots of asymetrical vests, sweaters, cardigans out there. You could just leave it as an asymetrical design too!

  3. I love the Chummy pose! Looks like my cats when they sprawl out for a nap! As for the lopsided knit... it still looks better than anything I've tried! And at least you know what to do to solve the problem... my heroine!

  4. I hope it made you laugh....rather than cry. It is going to be beautiful.

  5. I'd wrap short over long side and fasten it with one of those great shawl pins - but then I am an assymetric kind of girl!

  6. Oh my, Mel. You've been around me too long!

  7. No way to fudge that when you sew the side seams. No choice but to repair it. Makes you feel silly, doesn't it? Like I felt when I cut out a dress pattern and had two left sleeves!

  8. Oh darn!
    Don't I sometimes wish I could stretch out like the dogs when it!'s warm!

  9. The people who're very obese should take unique hoodia for a couple of months together to get back towards the normal BMI. Except I feel warmer, but that might just be hot flashes as I am almost 40 years old, lol. Companies that wish to manufacture this product into weight loss supplements are required to obtain a C.I.T.E.S.

  10. They are the finest of assets one can have around in an industrial outfit. When you see piles of merchandise piled up, your subconscious automatically interprets the stack as a steal. Warehouse clubs are sneakily taking advantage of this mind trick, creating mountains of merchandise without discounts. So I would recommend reading the price tags of piled items, to make sure its actually been discounted. 4. Long distance mean spending more money. * Employ both ends of the racks to hang cleaning supplies or stage cleaning carts. Every other rack works just fine and this is handy for the driver to get to them in case they have a spill.
