Last night I was purring merrily along with the first stockinette row of Big Star, when I saw A Hole. You know, one of those deadly, dratted ones, several rows back in my knitting. (I was too traumatized to photograph it.) In the star stitch section.
I dropped stitches back, but...
So, crap. I haven't the foggiest idea if I'm going to be able to fix this one. It's one thing to drop stockinette, quite another to drop star stitch. But I shudder at the thought of ripping back 2/3 of the star stitch rows and redoing them. My hands are still swollen from round one!
I'm soothing myself with Clapotis:
I realize that some people [you know who you are!] hate this colorway, but I love it, and even if you didn't love it you could close your eyes and just enjoy the silk/wool combo running through your fingers. Sundara Silky Merino DK. Ahhh. It's balm to the soul AND the hands. I'm making good progress on reknitting since the great ripping.
