Maybe It's Nothing

Okay, maybe I blew things out of proportion earlier today.

Here is the left side - the correct side:

Here is the right side - the incorrect side:

Here is what was worrying me on the right (incorrect side):

But it's also on the left (correct) side:

I guess this just happens when there is a make 1 and then the ribbing starts? I have no idea.

I don't think I'm going to reknit it...because the wonkiness seems the same on both sides.

A BIG Correction
A Raveler just confirmed that WEB recommends doing these side panel increases as M1R, M1L (which, um, makes sense). So, what I thought was correct was actually wrong and vice versa. Everything above in this post should be read in the reverse sense.

So there you have it. I'm officially a bit off in the head.

Please excuse the dramatics.

Hey Carrie,

I haven't understood much of your last few posts -- M1L and M1R are a little over my head :) (And I think that increases always look a little wonky, it's just inevitable.) But the Duster looked great at Hartford on Sunday -- I don't think that you'll have anything to worry about!

hey K:

1. As a knitter, I think I can see what you're freaking on, but only after you point it out, and then only after three times of looking closely.

2. I made a pair of ribbed decrease/increase handmits/armwarmers this year and had a similar problem with the point of decrease/increase along the rib.....the M1R and M1L (or for decreases, k2tog/ssk) would have probably made a subtle differene as I was making it, but five months later I'm not sure I'd know the difference to look at it.

Anyhow. I think the duster looks hott and am proud of you for taking it it. It almost HAS to be green!
