Wait. Stop. Look, really look.

Here, let me give me a close-up.

Remember when I dug out a long-abandoned scarf project, turned it into the front of a baby dress, extolled the virtues of a stash of UFOs, yadda yadda, and knit the back to match?

Today I went to go put them together.

And suddenly realized why my subconscious had been dragging its feet on getting that done for so long.

Huh. How could…

Well, out of the original 100g skein of yarn on that front I had 54 g left, so, there was nothing for it but to cast on with it and have a do-over.

Maybe that other dress back will morph into something else in its own time, too. Who says hats can’t have seams, right?

Or a really, really full sleeve. (Nahhhh…)

Or something.

Looks lovely…what am I missing? (Tired is my excuse for missing whatever it is) ?

Or you could pretend you meant to do that – it’s a thematic choice, indicating the chaotic actions of children, forward and backwards, up and down, you never know what you’re going to get? 🙂

(also: it took me a while to spot it, too, so it’s possible that no one will notice – but if they do, Artistic License?)

I am amazed: how did you turn one project into another??

Gorgeous color.

I totally think it would be fine, but I get it if it’s something you just can’t stand. Been there, re-knit that!

well, it would definitely pass the galloping horse test. Once it was on the baby, I think it would be hard to see. With that said, I tend to re-knit or frog things that bug me even if few other people can see the “design feature” I made.
