Have anyone of you guys ever worked so hard on a knitting project where it’s almost completed and found out that there’s a little section that you’ve messed up on? Happens to me ALL the time! Not only because I am a new knitter, it’s also the yarn. Some of the yarns are so smooth that they tend to fall of the knitting needle when I set it down for some reason. When coming back to knit the end of the project, that’s where I find my mistakes the most! So What do I do? I sit there for a good solid ten minutes and just stare it.
I always exaggerate the word why to myself before ripping out all that work. It’s so depressing. Really. I told myself “rip outs no more!” and then went on youtube to look up how to save knitted projects. I love this, I LOVE this technique so very much!
Does anyone need a lifeline? Here’s a piece of scrap yarn along with a tapestry needle for yah! Now. just loop the piece of scrap yarn under each right leg of a “V” underneath the row that you’ve just made a mistake on! Behind all of this wonderful ideas of her’s; I give you… Ms. Staci! Better known as VeryPink Knits on the tube! I found her channel while looking for some ideas on how to save your knitted works. You want to know what’s even better?
