You guys are brilliant. Brilliant, I tell you!
I’m going to modify the saxon braid pattern (starting with the repeat I’m on right now) to make every third one a circle rather than an ellipse. Not because I’m too lazy to rip it out, but because that fix didn’t occur to me. I’d like to evolve into a Jeet Kune Do-style knitter who can adapt to deal with adversity, rather than only dealing with it in one way (ripping it out).
At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
