Mystery House



No Pattern Too Easy, No Mistake Too Dumb


The Alien dishtowel is blocking as we speak.  I should have done this weeks ago, but I don’t always get around to these things.  Of course, until I’d gotten it soaking wet and pinned to the ironing board, I didn’t notice that I’d made a mistake.  A truly dorky one, too.

See that, on the righthand edge?  Where it’s supposed to be garter stitch?  I managed to sneak a row of stockinette in there.  A mistake this boneheaded is a dead giveaway that a nice summer evening, a chair on the deck and a margarita were involved.  Possibly two margaritas.

I can’t explain why I didn’t notice it.  But at this point, the boo-boo’s staying where it is.  After all, it’s a dishtowel.

    Besides, I’ve heard rumors that it angers the gods if our projects are too perfect. So now you’re safe from godly revenge.

    Don’t you just hate it when that happens? It is really cute though and I hope you enjoyed the margarita when you were knitting it!

    You’ll never notice it, and it was probably worth suffering through a nice summer evening, a chair on the deck and a margarita for.

    Don’t feel bad. I could use this post’s title as a motto…

    I swear if you hadn’t told me exactly what to look for & where to look for it – I wouldn’t have noticed it. If I had made the same mistake it would’ve eaten holes through my eyeballs.

    No one will ever notice a little booboo like that! Great towel! I think it’s kind of ironic that you have to block it.

    Whoops! I didn’t really see it until you mentioned it, if that helps.
