You did the right thing. Truly.

You probably don't remember, but in the 90s (?), Vogue published a cover sweater (Debbie Bliss, if I recall) with a glaringly miscrossed cable that became the butt of numerous jokes. You don't want that happening to you at a show ("Beautiful yarn, but did you see that cable...?!?").

SO GLAD to see I'm not the only one with this dillema! I am knitting a shawl for a friend (she paid with pygora roving!!) and I noticed a cable crossed wrong. I knew she probably wouldn't see it, especially because it is a reversable cabled shawl...but I KNEW IT WAS THERE and it bothered me to no end! So...rip it, rip it, rip it!

Jennifer

A mis-twisted cable seems to be my signature as a knitter. Right at this moment I am wearing Kingscot from Norah and have a cable on the back that curves the wrong way....

Manise

Painful to rip, but you'll be happier in the end. Look at you sailing away on it already! It's beautiful.

Carole

That's the definitely down side of cables. Even when you showed it to me I couldn't see it. Of course, I could blame the tinis and the wine for that!

Mary

I would have been ripping out something, too, but it would have been my hair, not the knitting. You have far more patience (and talent) than I.

Oh Gosh! Don't you just hate that ripping back part? But - I'm like you - I also would have waffled back and forth about it - but in the end - well - you know! LOLOL
It's going to be beautiful.

I've been there SO many times. We love to knit so we redo as needed and just keep on going! It's the sign of a true knitter.
