Opinions, please! To frog or not to frog?
I'm halfway through my increases already, but I'm having second thoughts about things. I'm using a merino wool from Uruguay (same as Malabrigo/handpaintedyarn.com, but different seller) that has a variegated coloring. I resisted the urge to knit with two balls at once out of sheer laziness and the lack of desire to do something so tedious as to keep up with two balls instead of just one. But I can plainly see where one ball ran out and the new one started. Is it visible to the average person who doesn't knit and who hasn't been told that the problem exists? Will it be visible when I wear it?? As I look at it in the photo, it looks worse than in person. I think it may be how others see it from a distance, though, so I think I may have my answer already. Sob... (BTW, in real life, it has more orange or terra cotta in it than the picture, which turned out kind of peachy. )
If I redo it anyway, should I do the hem slightly differently? I read in Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Without Tears (after I started this, of course.) that she recommended using fewer CO stitches for the underside of the hem or using a needle a size or two smaller so that there's not as much bulk in the hem. Thoughts?
Thanks for the help. I was so excited that I was almost ready for a sleeve, but I think I may be back to square one this afternoon. Oh, the agony of being a perfectionist! LOL
