No tinking with beads...

Knitting Zipping along (hah!) at our regular S'n'B lunch today, I spotted this: See that? A Missing Bead. Scarlet tried to persuade me that I should just stitch one on afterwards; I couldn't bring myself to do it. You can't tink back and fix a mistake when a bead just isn't on the right bit of yarn. So, I had to rip back and reknit. It was a whole pile of fun picking up that stitch pattern, I can tell you. But I now have two fully-beaded rows. Yay!

Being a perfectionist, too, I would have done exactly the same and it's looking lovely. With such a gorgeous cardi, you want it just right.

I like the stitch pattern, and the beads are really pretty. Have ripped back latest project 3 times in 4 days, having got to about 6 inches in length each time (and it's 4-ply), so I know how it feels ... but you will feel so much better for knowing it's done right. Gotta be worth it really.

On the subject of the loopy boa, took me about 4 hours to do, but I think a bit more practice would get the time down - I will be putting some more comments on my blog about this shortly, as I spent yesterday afternoon at Olympia, and ended up teaching about half a dozen people how to use a Loopa

I don't know how comments work on this because I am totally untechnical when it comes to computers, however if you ever read this I'd love to know how your Minnie turned out. I am also knitting it also in a discontinued red colour (can't remember the name) anyway it is coming up much shorter than I imagined and the neck seemed to start just after the armhole shaping which all seems a bit strange. I'm sure I've followed the pattern correctly but it is definitely smaller than the pic in the mag. My tension is correct - any ideas? and how was yours?
Yours in anticipation.
