This hat I am knitting for the Ravellenic Games, y’all.
It has some very complicated cabling, and I have had to rip out whole rows twice now.
Last night J asked me if it mattered, if I needed to rip the rows back and fix it.
Well, I said, it depends why I’m knitting a thing.
If I just wanted a hat, I would knit another 8-Trick Pocket Hat by Techknitter. I love this hat and it is incredibly straightforward, and I’ve knit three already. If I need a hat, I will knit that hat.
The entire purpose of knitting this hat, I said, is to have a beautifully intricate cabled hat.
Ah, she said. Yes.
So, I continued, if I bugger up the cabling, I have removed the entire purpose of knitting the blasted thing in the first place. Sure, I could leave the mis-cables, but then why would I continue knitting it?
Right, she said. Good luck with that.
So this morning I will finish ripping out the row I goofed up, and do it again.
Onwards and upwards.
