design on the fly
I was nearing the end of the body of my Front and Back Cable Sweater, and I decided to add ribbing at the bottom of the sweater, instead of the rolled edge in the original pattern. Then I decided that the cable should really extend all the way to the bottom and the ribbing should be next to it, to mirror the design of the neckline. All this was going through my head WHILE I continued to knit away toward the bottom of the sweater. By the time I made my final decision, I was past the point where I should have started the ribbing. So every other two stitches I dropped two stitches down 12 rows and changed each of them from knits to purls with a crochet hook.
Presto! Change-o!---Ribbing! Ok, it wasn't so much "Presto! Change-o!" as it was "Grumble! Glare at my knitting! Exasperated sigh! Change-o!" but it still worked and I'm glad I went back and changed it. Next time...think first, knit second.
