I made a very obvious mistake in my Sophie's Universe afghan and I couldn't leave it. It had to be fixed. I was too far past it to rip back, but it had to be fixed. This week I have a photo tutorial on how to fix such a mistake. The left leg of the stitch is correct and the right leg is attached to the light blue instead of the purple.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the
progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy
the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit
their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the
cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you
I'll admit that I was feeling a bit anxious before I snipped the yarn, but I had thought through the process and knew that it would work. No worries right. Once I had the errant stitch unravelled, there really was no threat of any other stitches coming loose. I did nudge and push at the nearby stitches and they were quite secure. Made me feel much better about the whole process. In the future, I'll try and be more observant as I'm stitching, but since I mostly knit and crochet while watching tv, more mistakes are bound to happen. Oh well, not the worst things in life. I do these for my own enjoyment, not to be hung in an art gallery nor do I sell them. They are good enough for me and my family.
I hope that you have found this mini tutorial helpful.
I won't ask you to post photos of your needlework mistakes, we all need some privacy. Mister Linky is waiting below for a link to your current needlework post.
