A couple of weeks ago I was talking to on of my friends at church about knitting. She mentioned that when she first started knitting, she added a bunch of stitches without knowing it. I laughed and said “hmm, I wonder how you did that.” and then didn’t give it much thought until a few days later when I decided on a whim to count my stitches. I had started my scarf with 25 stitches in a row. When I counted them, I had 38. I had somehow added 13 stitches without knowing it. I then talked to another knitter who told me how to take stitches out. I thought if I just took a few stitches out here and there it would not be noticeable. Well, I was wrong.
So I did what I should have done when I first realized the mistake.
I ripped it all out. I have started again and am very happy with it so far. I can’t wait to post pictures of the finished product.
