There I was, almost at the end of the second basketweave repeat, when disaster struck. Well, technically disaster had struck looong before that. I screwed up in the garter rows - can you believe it?!!
I could have left it, and I was sorely tempted to, but it was very obvious. I've been knitting too many things at once. I was in the middle of doing the k2, p2 ribbing of socks when on the second row of garter stitch on the stole. Guess what I did on the second row? Then, I was working on a sweater for a bit. So the fourth, fifth, and sixth row of the stole are stockinette. Somehow I added three more rows of garter before working the basketweave.
I broke my own heart frogging the whole of my progress. The worst is that I had decided to add extra beads into the project. A lot of extra beads. I had to carefully pick each one off the yarn as I got to it while frogging away. It took almost as long to frog as to knit.
Anyone else have any traumatic knitting experiences with Hanami yet? Care to join my personal pity party?
