As you know, I've been working in a production of 'Bye, Bye Birdie' at Christ Memorial Productions in St. Louis. I have been knitting throughout the show. I have a great hat and was almost done with the fingerless mitts to match it.
And then, when I was almost done with the second mitt, I put the two of them side by side and look at what I found! AAaaaarrrgggghhhh! Tension is so important! And counting rows. So you know what this means! For those of you in the audience who are sensitive to the graphic nature of the following pictures---well, you might want to turn your head. It is not meant to be viewed by those with sensitive stomachs. This is your last warning.
LET 'ER RIP!!!!!
I do apologize. But sometimes the true nature of the beast has to be shown. When it is not right, it must be fixed. I hope you all have learned a vital lesson here: pay attention to your pattern as you knit along. If you do, you can avoid this gruesome-ness.
