The goof was on the 26th section of the Doctor Who Scarf. I knit it as yellow. It’s supposed to be tan. I didn’t notice until my boyfriend pointed it out to me today just as I was finishing the 37th section.
I just couldn’t leave it. I couldn’t. I know that not many people will notice a mistake like that, but I’ll know it’s there and I can’t have that.
Yup. My scarf is in two sections. I pulled it apart at the join between the 25th and 26th sections. I’m going to knit the tan as I was supposed to then join with the gray section that’s supposed to be next. Guess it’s time to figure out how to graft two pieces of garter stitch together!
Also: It’s a really good thing that my color joins aren’t super knotted and short. I was actually able to pull it out without cutting anything, though what I’m going to do with that length of yellow I have no idea at this point. I’ll figure something out.
And in the baking department…
I made cookies! I’m going to frost them in the morning (I’m too tired to do it tonight) but, cookies! Anise cookies! A holiday classic in my mom’s family courtesy of my great grandmother (maternal grandfather’s mother – if you can follow that).
I’m planning to bring some to knit night at my LYS tomorrow as a treat. I don’t bake/cook often, but I shared the cake I made for my birthday and I figured I’d bring some of these. I wanted them anyways, and I knew my mom wouldn’t object to my baking them, so now the house smells nicely of anise. It’s a great smell this time of year. And the flavoring isn’t even really that strong, it tastes nothing like licorice (or absinthe!), it’s much more subtle.
I hope everyone had a good Christmas yesterday and though I’ll have another post before New Years, Happy New Years anyways!
PS: Have a penguin pinata full of nips. We swung at it with a sword. I didn’t end up drinking any of the nips, but a ton of fun anyways. Who doesn’t like a pinata?
