Spot the mistakes?yes. the infinitely frustrating high neck top.

mistake #1: the absence of two bobbles. caused by the fact that the rest of the bobbles were knit in a short row, and when i finally closed up the short rows i didn't notice/ think to add some bobbles on.

mistake #2: Underneath the top row of bobbles is a weird.... thing. the stitches go sort of zig-zaggy. is this twisted stitches? i don't know. i don't know WHAT i did there.

ultimate question: do i frog to pre-the short rows, or do i suck it up, accept that this damn thing is riddled with 'personality' and keep going?

eta: hope the image is bright enough to see. it is on my monitor. i've been having problems with natural/ flash light on the camera recently.

eta: i really, really wish i was just knitting, like, a garter stitch scarf right now.

damn you pesky Vogue patterns! :(
it's really hard to tell whether it's frog-worthy or savable when you can only see a setion of it. How noticeable are the mistakes when you look at the piece as a whole?

Maybe you could bring it before the SnB council for their judgement?

nah. i've decided not to frog. too much pain already. the twisted stitches are only visible to a knitter (tested on my housemate), and are kind of just below my bust (and thus overshadowed by my enormous, dazzling cleavage, of course). i will try a novel form of overstitching to add the extra bobbles. if they don't work, well, the missing bobble is sort of under my arm mostly anyway.

so about as good as a bad thing could be.
