Can this error be fixed without frogging?
I have an error in my sampler shawl (from the Book Folk shawls, page 134, row 9 in pattern 1) and I know what it is - each marker should have 14 stitches - and the first in this photo does, the second has 13 stitches - which mean that I did not yarn over in the place where the arrows are marking about 3 rows back. After the last row of the pattern, I knit and then I purled. I need to get the stitch back in there. Is there a way to fix it without frogging? I know I could "fix" it by just increasing in the next row and be on my merry way, but that wouldn't quite be right either. I am hoping that someone with more experience than me can offer me some words of wisdom or a solution. What's the verdict?
On another note, it's the 4th of July and a quiet one in this household. Dear husband is mowing the lawn, laundry is in the works and the menu for the day has yet to be determined. This evening will be watching a Capitol 4th - some friends from church, John, Marcia, and son Ashton will be there with thousands to celebrate in grand form - surely we will get to see them - I know they will be a fashion statement worthy of a camera to find them! If not, I know they will have pictures they will share when they get back. Maybe we will get a picture to make them victims of being blogged.
What are you doing for your 4th of July experrience??? Leave comments to share!
