Somewhere, in the last week, I read an article, with great pictures, of
how someone dropped stitches and re-knitted row by row using coloured pins
for each row.
Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Can't find the article.
I normally just pull out my double points, and pick up the stitches and
knit back up the section dropped after I've identified where I am in my lace
repeat, and separate out my rows of yarn. I find using a crochet hook often
alters my stitch tension more than just using dpn's of the appropriate size.
My record so far is dropping 24 rows to fix a mistake I found on a cabled
throw. I think in lace I've only dropped a few rows here and ther to fix a
glitch I haven't seen at the time..mind you I say I do this and it sounds
calm, though there is nothing calm about it. I typically swear and dogs
scurry from the room to find safety elsewhere. But I figure in the end I will
try it this way and save myself some knitting, or just have to tear back
anyway. As of yet, I always seem to manage to make the fix.
great article , thanks for sharing it.
Glad you found it, Bill. It sure sounded interesting to me and I have
saved it. What a wonderful technique.
we found it!
I just looked at the article. Can you say knitting surgery? LOL Wow. Such
dedication to fiber art!
