A few days ago I noticed an erroneous lean in my knitting. I thought it was small and would be easily forgotten if I just carried on knitting.
But it wasn’t going away… if anything it was becoming more noticeable. By this point there was no way I was knitting backwards for rows and rows. No time like the present to learn a new technique.
I dropped a few stiches, pulled out enough rows to get the error erased and followed carefully the instructions of Yarn Harlot to repair back to needle level.
Then I realised my leaning cable meant I had to drop more stitches, risk more live stitches and greater uncertainty of a lazy fix being possible (I mean it was always possible just uncertain whether I had the skills to make it possible).
It came good in the end though. I must have gotten too enthralled with fixing to take more mid-progress photos.
The end result isn’t too shabby. The yarn looks a little worse for wear in this area but after blocking I’m hopeful it’ll be barely noticable to the untrained eye.
Attempted any reckless knitting fixes recently?
