I have committed a painful knitting blunder. I knit a beautiful sweater dress in size 5T for my older daughter. It's full of twist stitch patterns, textured patterns, elaborate ribs, lacework, and picot edging. It's truly a lovely little bit of cotton candy fluff for my little Princess. It was only after I'd finished the last 26 rows of 240 stitches each in the lace pattern that I realized that I had knit it with a synthetic yarn rather than my standard wool.
O.M.G. Did I really just do that? Did I really just spend months working on a sweater dress that I CAN'T BLOCK INTO SHAPE?!?!?!!?
I really cannot believe myself. Over 60% of the detail is lost when the yarn contracts back into its natural position. I am beside myself.
