Putting right wrongs.
I'm a great believer in putting right wrongs. . . . . .. . . this, however, is not what I mean!!!!
This is a jumper I made my sister for Christmas, which somehow ended up a bit short. Being Chenille I couldn't pick up the stitches at the bottom and knit down as it would show too much, so after several attempts at other ways, it became clear that the only way to go was to take the scissors to the bottom and cut off the ribbing !!!!!!!! I've been putting it off for weeks, but am visiting aforementioned sister next week, so couldn't procrastinate any longer!!!
Actually it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. The good thing is that knitting doesn't undo upwards, so once cut all I needed to do was find a solid row, pick the stitches up, and hey presto!! So stitches are now found, Knitting needles are in place. . . . . . . . and thus they will stay, as I am not going to cast it off this time until i know it fits!!!!!!
