The Sunday Yarn - 2 Dec 2012

As you can see in the photo above, I messed up the shaping of the cardigan's left front!  I'd sewn it in place and pinned the right front on before I realised that I must have read the pattern wrong at some point and ended up with the shaping the wrong way around at the top.  Duh!

Thankfully, there were only a few, short rows to pull out (once I'd detached it from the sleeve again, that is) and it's now back on the needles waiting for me to feel up to tackling getting it the right way around.  I can't think how I managed to do this, (must have missed a row somewhere and there was also at least one error in the pattern - a rogue purl row - that someone else had spotted and warned me of), but I did think it looked a rather odd shape and wondered how it would sew together....

It's always dispiriting to have to unpick and redo , isn't it!

Unpicking knitting is my worst nightmare [probably why I don't do it!:)]
