Around dinnertime yesterday, less than 48 hours from when I started it, I bound off for the sleeves of my Trellis. That’s two and a half pattern repeats — 51 rows — 6,681 stitches — so far. I was sooo proud of myself. Ha.

Then I noticed the mistake. It’s a really, really big one.

I’m not going to go into the details here, because I feel like an idiot. It was one of those things where the whole time I was knitting, I thought, “hmmm, that’s a little odd.” But it wasn’t until I stopped and took a good look at it that I realized what I had done. We’re talking, if there were Darwin Awards for knitters, I’d be in the running.

To the untrained eye, not a huge deal. To me…well, I think I might be able to alter the pattern a bit to accommodate my glaring error. But I’m not sure that it wouldn’t drive me completely crazy. I *so* should have waited for Jenny’s spreadsheet.

Sooo…frog 5,563 stitches? Or keep going? Ack.

On second thought, I’ll post a picture and the first person to identify the horrifying error will win a special prize!!
