Tour de France KAL - Lecon 4: Un Accident d'automobile

Lesson 4: A Car Accident

Home_straight_damn_straight In the illustration for this chapter there is a motorbike and a policeman: things you see quite often in the Tour de France. The Haute Tricot jumper has had 'un accident' itself. Just as I had finished all the knitting, I saw an errant purl stitch: sirens sounded, triple '0's were rung, mad excursions on motor bikes were thought about, and arms waved wildly about as if an officer of the law was directing ill-placed stitches. I marked the stitch, which is of course right in the front, with some 'Ming' coloured wool. I am going to unRavel the cast off, drop the stitch down, change the Purl to a Knit and then pick the stitch up again and cast off once more. Then, just the sleeves to be sewn up and the neckband to knit and the Jumper: She is finished!!! Lundi is the day then!!!

Hey Cindy,

Need some advice...I've been contacted by a shop in Launceston called Homebody about stocking my cushions. Any chance you know of the shop. I would love to hear what you think of it. Can you see my cushions there??

Cheers,
Belinda

Man you are a speedy knitter - I am not worthy.

At this stage a successful finish for me is NOT guaranteed....only a 1/4 of the way through...with the big mountains ahead...

Are your needles hot from all that speed-knitting? Good catch on the errant stitch, too. That would have really bugged me if I'd found it two months down the line!

Michelle

Oh Cindy, you should embrace the Japanese notion of wabi sabi whereby they DELIBERATELY make a mistake, because nothing should be perfect.

I'm catching up on my bloglines and I am in suspense of the mistakenly purled knit stitch. Does it all work out? I'll keep reading to find out. ;)
