Maybe I Should Go To Bed



So, I started a simple face cloth yesterday evening and finished it tonight. It's part of a gift that needs to be done..NOW. I was knitting happily along (I do love the decrease end the best) and there was OH NO, a knot in the yarn. So I tinked back a ways and cut the yarn and spliced and hoped like hell it wouldn't make a lump. Too bad you can't spit splice Cotton Tots.

I decided that I would go make some tea and then weave in the ends so I just put it on the table. When I came back to it, I saw this. There towards the middle a single line of knit stitch suddenly becomes a double line. WTF? Only thing I can figure out is that when I did the splicing I somehow turned around and went back the way I came. :::banging head::: Oh well, I guess I get a new face cloth and the fun of knitting another one. Sigh.

Doesn't it just frustrate you when you are knitting along and you come to one of those darn knots and have to back up and punt?

It's a design feature!

LOL Ann, I sort of looked at it in an unbelieving way. What in the world?? A knot? In MY yarn?

Susan said...

Thanks ffc! And thanks to Kristy too for getting this going!

Susan said...

Uh huh, Devorah! Sure it is :-)

Knots should not be allowed in yarn! This yarn I am knitting on for the Red Scraft thing has had more than it's share - and I am not happy with it...

Hey, just think you get a new cloth for yourself...and they're easy to knit...

Sara, I agree wholeheartedly! And there's always a bright side (at least I tell myself that) and I can always use a new face cloth. I really like the ones with Cotton Tots. Not as soft as that wonderful Crystal Palace chenille, but a nice scrub.
