Aaaaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhh!

Okay so I'm sat in the canteen at work yesterday afternoon knitting away at my Top down Raglan. I've done the body, picked up and knitted the collar. Picked up the right sleeve and am half way down it when a friend sitting opposite me says "Should there be a hole in it there?"

Aaaaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhh!

I've dropped a stitch about two inches below the left armhole and failed to notice it. I must have done it when I was trying it on for size and putting it on to and taking it off a second circular.

So what would you do in the circs? Well I'm not ashamed to admit that when I got home I used a crochet hook to pick up the rows that had unravelled, pull the loose stitch through to the back and tied it off with some spare yarn. No way was I going to frog the damned thing and reknit the body!

I certainly agree with you there - nothing wrong with getting the old crochet hook out and doing a bit of repairs! A woman after my own heart!

I would have done exactly what you did! Its not cheating, its troubleshooting!

There is no way I would have ripped that out - it's easily fixed with a trusty crochet hook!! What's more no one would notice!

Aaarrggghh indeed. I don't blame you for not ripping, sounds like the perfect solution.

Definitely the right solution!! I wouldn't have fancied ripping out either!

Thanks for popping by my blog and giving me a hearty laugh :-D it was the four-year-olds that were responsible for the dribbling!
