Rogue and the wonky stitch

I have reached the armholes and started knitting back and forth on the back of the sweater. I noticed a wonky stitch about 20 rows back, and for the next several rows tried to tell myself I could live with it - NOT. So I dropped back to it. It ended up being a dropped stitch somehow attached to its big loopy neighbor. You can see the wonky stitch at the bottom of that vertical drop.




(The camera was too tired to focus twice.) I don't know if it is visible in this blurry photo, but now I have a vertical row of tight stitches. The fix may be worse than the wonky stitch. I am going to continue on and close my eyes to it. I will pretend it is not there. I do not see it. *sigh*

Wasn't it Elizabeth Zimmerman who talked about how these kinds of things eventually even out with wear and washing? That is my hope, that with blocking and wearing it will even out a little more.

Okay, no more whining. Onward!

I've found that my knitting gives and evens itself up, even with slight ladders when doing socks on dpns. I don't think it will be noticeable once you've finished and it's been washed.

Ooh I hate wonky stitches! Hopefully it will work itself out in the wash, like you said. Just keep going - it's too late to turn back now!
God bless :)

Blocking fixes all wonky stitches I think. Love how you just went down and picked it up.

It'll even out, but as the knitter, you will always be able to see it. :(

I think blocking will do the trick.
