One Down

After months of inactivity, I decided to finish my Ella. Mainly because I wanted to free up the needles I had been using.

It had been so long since I had worked on it that I had to refer back to the pattern, whereupon I realized that I had been making a mistake all along, purling 2tog where I was supposed to be p2tog-tbl-ing. So what do I do now? No way to fix it except to start over. Keep going, repeating the mistake for consistency?

Ella, Before

Or think about how cute that yarn would be as a baby surprise jacket or a wee tomten and rip?

Ella, After

The other WIPs are shaking in their bag.

Knitting bag

They don't know it yet, but at least two among them await similar fates.
