I've been tearing along on Baby Cables this last week and by Saturday night I was in the home stretch. We were watching a pretty-good movie (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead) and I left the last few rows for the next morning so I could cast it off with all my wits about me.
Sunday, I start casting off and something is not right. The right sleeve (the first one I knit) had 15 garter ridge; the left sleeve has 16.
I figure I must have messed up the last left cable by putting in a couple of extra rows in the middle part. So I need to rip back about 15 rows. Frogging ensues.
Then I consult my chart and check it out. I count some rows, stitches and garter ridges and get a sinking feeling. The left sleeve is the correct one. The right one is wrong. So now i need to reknit the one I just frogged and rip out the other sleeve.
How stupid am I? Don't answer that.
I'm not sure if you can see the difference, but this is after I re-knit the already-correct-sleeve-I-frogged. The ripped sleeve is the one I should have ripped out in the first place.
I didn't have the same amount of knitting time on Sunday (went to see Madagascar 2, which was good fun, then felt like crap due to bad food I ate) so I'm having a do-over tonight.
