Touch And Go

Bob: We're here at the medic tent the injured Sutton sweater.  It looks bad, folks.  A 6" by 2.5" patch is incorrect, and we're waiting to hear if the injury can be healed, or if this is the end of the road for this sweater.

Ron: It's sad to see such a debilitating injury this early in the competition...... 
Bob:  Wait!  Do you see what I see???  Ms. Sutton is going to try using the ladder technique to correct the problems.   She is actually going to undo each column of stitching and, with the aid of a sterilized crochet hook, rework each column to be the correct pattern!!!

Ron:  What a tremendously brave attempt!  To undo 6 inches of knitting by reworking one column at a time--this will take hours!  If it can even be done!  I thought I had seen everything....

Bob: They're applying the anesthesia now
and we'll be hoping to hear the results in a few hours......

You can do it Toni! I have had to repair worse injuries to my knitting, lol. Steady as she goes. The wine will help too, lol. Good luck.
