When I picked up the stitches for the front I was tired and a bit fed up of it so I cut corners and didn't make sure I'd picked up stitches evenly on both sides. When I cast off I realised that I was a good 4 stitches short on one side and I hadn't picked up neatly on the bottom either so it looked a bit of a mess.
I tried blocking it, I sewed the buttons on (I loathe button sewing buttons!) and I got my daughter to model it. But the mistakes were too obvious and they irritated me. I knew they would irritate me every time I saw them, so I had to do something I hate:
Lesson learned, don't cut corners. *sigh*
On the upside, I knitted a pair of mittens yesterday from stash yarn so I'll be able to show off photos of them later. Just need to block them first :-)
Has anyone else made a silly mistake while knitting? Do you frog back and fix it or do you just ignore it?
