I was so proud of getting my Bruegel knitting done so quickly.
You know what they say, pride comes before a fall.
When I was blocking it on Tuesday, I discovered this:
Like a closer look?
Can you see? The right collar piece is narrower than the left. Four stitches narrower. This was my internal dialogue when I discovered this:
Bad RoseRed: “oh, it will be ok, it’s hardly noticeable, when I’ve seamed the collar to the right front, no-one will be able to tell”
Good RoseRed: “um, but you will know about it”
BRR: “yes, but I don’t care that much about little mistakes. I really wanted to wear this on Thursday”
GRR: “oh come on, you’ve done such a nice job on this, it’d be a shame to fudge it at the end”
BRR: “but you know how I HATE to frog. Fudging is what I do best!”
GRR: “oh, it’s only a day or so to rework, it’s worth it to have it looking as it should. And besides, when you kitchener the two collar pieces, they won’t match. You can’t fudge a 4 stitch difference”
BRR: “GAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Darn you for being right!”
Sigh. So it’s a frogging I will go. When I can face it.
