Rookie mistake

I finished a sweater for Mr. Aitch’s grand niece’s first birthday and I’m not happy with the result.

Funny how I didn’t see the lopsidedness of the snap band and the ridges until I took the pics.

I didn’t want to pick up all those stitches for a button band and should have just done a 4-5 stitch edging on the two front edges as I was knitting.  But no.  I wanted to add a fabric button band and snaps to make it easier to fasten and unfasten.  Not matching up the horizontal ridges was a rookie mistake.  I had such a time of getting those snaps on (I broke three in the process) that I just want to be done with it.

The party is Sunday and I’m debating on whether I should just remove the sewn on button/snap band and knit it OR give it as is and be embarrassed to gift such shoddy work.  And we know that I won’t do the later…

  1. It still looks beautiful. And I had to look really closely to see the off part. Kids wear stuff crooked all the time and no one else would notice!

  2. I really hate when that happens. Then I ask myself “why did I not see that?”. Most likely would have done the same. At least.you will remember next time. Sorry!
