When I was planning my scarf, I thought I was so clever. For my colorwork scarf, I was knitting a long tube, and I thought I’d put a column of purl stitches on each side to encourage the scarf to ‘fold’ at the edges. Sounds like a good plan, right?
Well, it was. Or it might be still, but there’s a complication.
For the colorwork, I have a few long floats that I generally have been twisting in every so often, partially to try to keep the tension more even, and so there aren’t long floats muddling up the inside. But, I twisted some of these long floats in the stitches neighboring the column of purls, and so when I sat back to admire my handiwork (and brilliant idea), I saw these:
Little blips of color from the twisted/anchored floats.
The perfectionist in me is saying to rip it back, and reconsider twisting the floats. The laziness in me says, “Eh, whatever. Who will notice?”
Right now, (and I hope you’re sitting down for this), I’m not ripping it back. ::Gasp!::
I’ve convinced myself that it’s not that noticeable, and that I’ll be perfectly happy with it. Only time will tell.
