A rookie’s reaction

Yeah, I was tired when all that happened. No, the Russian splice idea won’t work–the yarn’s too slippery. What it did do was give me a thought that allowed me some calming down so I could start to think it through better. Richard this morning looked at it and went, “Even *I* can see that one!”

But I knew in the instant I woke up that of course I could fix that.  Just an extra necklace hanging around the neck of one stitch by the time I get done. Yes it’ll take awhile. Yes it’ll mean dropping down many rows at the point of a double decrease each time, and it will be a major pain.  And yes I can do it. And no it won’t show.

And no I don’t have to and actually can’t right now because it’s still damp–but just wait till I get my mitts on it.  I’ll show it.

Company about to show–later!

Oh my — you’re made of sterner stuff than I! Seriously though, I have no doubt you’ll whip it into shape.

Of course you can! No one ever accused you of being lacking in determination and perseverance. Our role model!

You are very brave to tackle it. You are obviously ready to do it. These are the times I give thanks for the patience knitters seem to find in an emergency. Good luck. Remember to breathe whilst you do it. It is easy to hold your breath when concentrating that hard.
