Ruh Roh!

There's been a problem with the Autumn Leaves Cardigan. The problem actually began when I started the sleeve. Remember how I'm using more than one dyelot? (Bad knitter, bad knitter.) Well I started with the smaller batch for the yoke and sleeves. By the time I started the sleeve I knew I didn't have enough yarn in the batch to get that whole area done. Then I got a Ravelry message from the designer letting me know that she had clarified one of the steps in the directions. The way it was originally written, it could be worked one of two ways. I chose the wrong way.

So, the dyelot issue and the fact that I'm going to have to fix what I already did anyway means I'm frogging it and starting over. Fortunately, I won't have to refigure row numbers for increases and decreases, I can just start over following my notes with the bigger batch of yarn. It should go pretty quickly for me to get back to where I was.

The funny thing? I almost emailed the designer about the place in the directions that could read either way to find out what I was supposed to do exactly. Instead I just went with what felt right. Oh, well...
