Tangled Up in Bobbles

November 23rd, 2009 | 2 Comments

So I have been knitting.

If by “knitting” you mean knitting and re-knitting the same section of sweater over and over again. I am now officially a working stiff (of the hellish-commuting/lots-of-overtime variety), which means on a good day I’ll get to sneak maybe 20 minutes of knitting before I pass out on the couch. Anything more complicated than stockinette is now completely beyond me.

…I brought it to knit night. And then I continued to work on it while attempting to watch soccer coverage in Spanish, which I barely understand but am trying to learn. This is what happened:

Autumn Arbor stole, half a repeat, with error

I was tempted to leave it. If the mistake can’t be spotted from the back of a galloping horse, who cares, right? But you know who could spot a mistake from the back of a galloping horse? An eagle.

Time to tink.

Front of Head

The front of the head is a little trickier. First, line up the pieces as pictured, with the right sides facing you—if you’ve done this correctly, the two bound-off stitches at the side of each piece should meet in the middle. The blue dots represent the row markers you placed while knitting.
