ah, the joys of being persnickety (anal)

yesterday, i knit up the 3 borders on kimberly's vents. but something just was not right, on the bottom edge, there were these little pieces hanging down. if you were piecing a quilt, they would be called dog ears.

the pattern has you double decrease every row at the center, but no decreasing at the beginning and ending of the rows (the bottom edge.)

so i ripped them back to the pick-up, and started over, this time decreasing one stitch at the beginning and end of every odd row.
viola, no dog ears :-) all is right with the world.

where is that bloody ups man?

I don't think that is being persnickety at all. It didn't look right they way it was written and now that you have fixed it it looks great!

Great job! You're right, the pattern wasn't.

Persnickety? Nah, it's as the old saying goes, anything worth doing is worth doing right.

It's coming along great!

By the way, I just HAD to get the celtic poncho/shawl pattern. It will be perfect for a pretty brown Romeldale fleece (the ewe's name is Sienna) that I just purchased from Tina. Thank you.
