Unraveled Wednesday

There was a bit of unraveling last week that I didn’t share. I was about 2 inches into the body of this sweater when I realized I had knit two rows instead of the knit one row purl one row pattern. I tried to fix it which resulted in a huge mess so I unraveled about 1.5 inches and put the stitches back on my needles. I held my breath and began again. What a relief to find the correct number of stitches were on the needles. I have about two more inches of the body and then I need to decide about length. Fortunately I will be able to try it on since it is top down.

A few other things I am enjoying as we launch into July:

I cannot get enough of the berries. This salad is destined for my plate this weekend.

I spent a day at a friend’s beach house which was filled with sunshine and conversation.

Yesterday we had rain and grey skies so I did some serious decluttering.

I finished The Great Believers and I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening): A Guide to Grace-Field Political Conversations and I recommend both.

Off to link up with Kat.

  1. So glad you got those stitches back on track! Thanks for the book recommendations; shall check out. Do enjoy your holiday!

  2. I know that feeling when you’re holding your breath and counting the stitches to make sure you picked them all up! I’m glad it worked out for you and you’re back to making forward progress. I’ve been thinking of reading I Think You’re Wrong, your recommendation is appreciated.

  3. I am glad that your unraveling was successful and I really love your yarn choice for your Junegrass sweater! Have a happy weekend!

  4. Glad you were able to get the correct number of stitches back on the needles (not always a sure thing for me – lol). And that salad looks so yummy!!

  5. How dispiriting that must have felt! But a testament to your powers of endurance and determination that you ripped it out and re-did it … I’ve had a look at your salad recipe and might just try this one :).

  6. That’s the worst mistake to try and correct — especially if it’s more than two stitches in a row! I’ve been knitting Tin Can Knits’ RYE socks and there’s a section of garter amongst the stockinette that I’ve had to rip and re-do, too! I’ve printed that salad recipe — so many of my favorite things in there. Thanks!

  7. Who-hoo for getting the correct number of stitches back on the needle. That sweater is going to be quite nice once it is finished. I like the pattern. The salad looks delicious.

  8. Yay for your successful fix! …the day at the beach AND the gray rainy one both sound wonderful. Hope you’re finding peace – xo.
