Twenty- Seven Inches and Counting

I am still working away at the My Favourite Things cowl:

I was looking over my projects on Ravelry and realized that almost everything I have going is fingering-weight. No wonder I love this project; knitting in worsted-weight goes so quickly! The pattern says to knit about 60 inches, so I'm almost halfway done.

I am especially happy with the coffee cups because I designed that motif myself using nothing but a pencil and graph paper. That's the good news. The bad news? There's a mistake in the knitting. Can you see it? Let me know. I may have to do some fixing.

Don't forget to join up with Nicole as part of Keep Calm Craft On today.

  1. I can see it but only because you said there was one there so I went looking for it :)

    You could easily just over stitch them at the end instead of frogging though.

  2. I see it, but I don't know that I would rip out because of that. I guess it depends on how much it bothers YOU.

    The coffee cups are ADORABLE. Good job on the designing.

  3. Oh I love this!

    And since you mentioned it, I actually looked for the mistake - but until then, didn't notice it. I'd be inclined to not worry about it. But maybe that is just me ...

  6. Noooooo! I'd stitch over that rather than frog. In fact, I'd leave it myself, but I like a bit of imperfection. I love the cowl, regardless!

  7. I saw it when I looked back to find it, and I agree, don't frog, just duplicate st at the end.

  10. Gorgeous! It took some intense scrutiny but there's a bit of a pink stripe on one of those coffee cups. I like it though!

  14. This is absolutely lovely! The coffee cups are amazing! I do see the little mistake, but I don't think it needs fixing. It will just be unique.

  15. I think it's gorgeous and don't think it needs fixing at all. When it is round your neck not one person will see it.

  16. I see it but who cares. Hide that part in the back. This cowl is too amazing to rip back now !

  17. Those coffee cups are so cool! Well done. Um, I do see the mistake, but ONLY because you told me to look for it ...

  18. "mistake" is a subjective term, in my opinion. I see nothing here that would worry me enough to rip out all that beautiful colourwork :)
