Oh, the finish line. I’m having flashbacks to finish lines of my past, the few times I managed to get my schnozz together to tie my shoes, show up on time, and hit the start line along with all the other better trained, more stalwart contestants.
I never won a race during my brief cross-country career. I think I finished last at least once, or so far in the back that I commiserated with the runners who were faking injuries.
I crossed the finish line today on this Annisa Wrap.
These bias garter stitch asymmetrical wrap projects are such a breeze.
A fine, asymmetrical, three-color wrap with that double decrease running right across the length of the thing.
I bound off the end, feeling a little smug. Such a smooth run! No cramps, no fake shoe-tying to catch my breath. And then I saw something. I have marked it with a Clover Removable Marker so as to make it clear that Something Is Very Wrong.
One dropped stitch, the result of a failed increase. I can’t believe it didn’t unravel.
How do I fix this? It’s on Row 62 of a five-billion-row project. Unlike Kay Gardiner, who will rip back to Row 2 without a blink, I am not even vaguely interested in ripping back to this row. Should I staple it? What does The Smart Knitter do in this situation? I am feeling like The Idiot Knitter right about now—I’m limping to the finish line with all the injury fakers.
