Ugh… I need to frog…

Filed under: Uncategorized — yarnnut @ 7:46 pm

I’ve been knitting happily along w/ my Lucky Wrap when I took a really good look at the picture in the Stitch N Bitch Nation book. My fronts do not match the picture in the book. Ugh… what did I do wrong??? There is some errata that was posted on http://www.knithappens.com. Of course, being the consciencious knitter that I am, I never check whether there is an errata for a pattern. There is an error in the front and the sleeves. People, I’m halfway thru the first sleeve! I’ve completed the back and both the fronts! I’m about to jab my size 3 addis into my eyes in frustration. But, I don’t want to mess up perfectly good needles. No problem you say…just frog it. I’ve been knitting this sweater on size 3 needles for months. This frogging is going to hurt.

For those of you who are making this sweater, Knit the hell up posted her notes. I’m going to use them… ugh… wish me luck.



  1. Oh, dear. I’m so sorry to hear about the sweater problems. Can you just work around them and say that you “customized” the sweater?

  2. Oh, geck! I’m so sorry. I like the “customized” option.

  5. I think that’s why I finally stopped knitting with patterns and just “make it up as I go along” now. With patterns, I’d have to pay close attention— but since I knit while watching TV I would frequently make a mistake and have to frog…arrggh. (Of course, knitting without a pattern can cause frequent disasters that no amount of frogging can fix….erck…)
