Pay Attention, There's a Pop Quiz at the End

So I'm working on my knucks last night. And I've noticed that sometimes (ok, who am I kidding--a lot of times) I do something when I'm knitting in the round.

Now, look at the following picture. Just glance. Pretend you don't knit and you don't know any better (if you're a knitter!). Now tell me what's wrong with it and if it's too terribly noticeable:


Complete with alpaca sniffing cat.

Hm. Yeah. I don't know. I might frog it and start this hand over. Knitting all those little fingerlets was such a pain in my assmar. And yes, I could frog to the fingerlet stitches, but the alpaca is pretty fuzzy and splitty and I'm lucky I got the stitch count right.

Oh well, win some lose some right?

You mean the purl ridge? I would leave it and call it a design feature.

I call that "creative license" - I have A LOT of creative license in my knitting!

I'm with the others. Do it to the other one and you've got yourself some fancy design.

Just make sure you don't forget to do the same thing on the other one.

Or maybe it should be "make sure you forget again..."

Yeah it's just a little too ridgey for my tastes. And I don't think I could replicate it on the other hand!

I vote for design feature! Consider the ridge extra protection if you're attacked by a robber and have to bop him one.

Like weddings and parties and things you plan and invite others to, it's your (and now all of our) little secret; if it doesn't turn out the way you planned it, so what? Who needs to know?

Purl the other one where you "went the wrong way 'round" on the first. That should do the trick nicely.

I'd keep it too, but them I'm a lazy bum. It looks fine to me. Still if it makes you happy - rippit rippit.

If you rip it, the fingerlets should be easy enough to save and retrieve the stitches on, shouldn't they?

Leave it. Looks like a design feature to me. And even if you forget to repeat it on the other hand, you can tell people who question it that you meant to do it like that. :)

See, I'm completely anal, I rectum. I never thought I was, but then I vote for "rip it". You know it will make you happy to have fixed it.

*Ali who knits fast, makes mistakes even faster, and spends most of her knitting time un-knitting*

WEll, considering I gartered my mitten's thumbs THREE TIMES and frogged them... I'm all for frogging if - as long as you don't like it. It actually took me a minute to notice. Something looked slightly off, but I didn't connect it right away.

Do as you please. If it pleases you to hear the grumbling of the croaking frogs, then rip it back to a place of purity. If it pleases you to have bumps on your knuckles, leave 'em. Who would know there was a problem, except you (and, now, of course, all your blog readers! :))
