Oh, Claudia, you bring back memories of my own failure to read a pattern correctly. My pattern was the Spiderweb cardigan, and it wasn't failure to read it all the way through. I should have just read it correctly. I was probably watching tv (the time I do most of my crocheting and knitting). I even wrote Interweave Crochet to tell them of the mistake in the pattern, but I never heard back from them. Humph! What lack of customer service! I thought. I finally re-read the pattern only to realize I had read it incorrectly. Needless to say, I felt pretty foolish for having written to Interweave about "their" mistake. Thanks for giving me the courage to admit something I thought I'd never reveal!


I send my "sympathy" along to you. At least you had a somewhat complicated pattern...I messed up a simple hat about 5 times before I got it right and then put it in the washer and forgot it, ended up with a child's hat that my husband was to wear. Can't wait to see your finished sweater..I bet it will be beautiful!!


Since I've never been able to knit anything with any degree of competence, I'm in awe of what you did! :)


How amusingly sad. I hate to rip and on something so lovely it seems even worse. You poor thing. I'm sure it's knitting along beautifully now.


Well, yeah, there'd be that. See, though, I solve that problem by not using a pattern - it saves on troubles like these. Of course, you end up the occasional thing that's too huge to wear as it was intended, or you end up with something sized for a newborn kitten ... but it beats trying to figure out somebody else's gibberish idea of an explanation. ;)
