Knitting has come to a standstill as I'm faced with the blunder I made about 20 rows back. See that elongated "C" curve in the upper half of the photo? Well there should be a cable crossing similar to the one you see in the lower half of the photo. I can't believe I didn't catch the mistake sooner. Now I am faced with trying to unravel this section and hope I can work all the cable crossings correctly as I go up, or tediously tink back over 1350 stitches to correct my mistake. I should add that I'm knitting this on 3.25 mm (US3) needles and it is difficult to see well with this dark green yarn.
What would you do in this situation?
I tinked back 2 rows and was completely done in. I frogged the entire piece.
Now I need to work up to casting on again. I'm not sure if I'll actually complete this. I like the pattern but don't like it in this sport weight yarn, however the width too wide if I use the DK weight yarn I really want for this project. It can be challenging to find a good marriage between yarn and pattern, especially when one is making an effort to shop the (very modest sized) stash.
We're expecting a little heat wave tomorrow and the next day. I may even get to turn on the air conditioner. It feels so strange to have air conditioning. We never had it in San Francisco. Didn't need it there. If it gets unbearable, I may treat Miss M to some Jamba Juice...
I find it difficult to knit with wool on such hot days. Who wants wool draped over one's lap when it's 75ºF (24ºC) and up?
ETA: It's expected to be 92ºF (33ºC) and 99ºF (37ºC)respectively on Tues & Wed, in Sunnyvale, CA.
