Ms. Knit Fix-It??

Hey Gang! :o)

Hope all is well in your world on the other side of the screen!

So it has been a little damp and cold here again lately. And I've been wearing my Lady Detective Hat until I saw this:

*gasp* a dropped stitched on a finished project!

*relax, relate, release*

So I climbed the lone star stitch up the ladders with my fingers...no biggie

But now what??? I did a 3 needle bind-off on the brim of the hat....so how do I secure it??
Help me be Ms. Knit Fix-it! Please and thank you :o)


In other knit news:

I have been feverishly trying to complete my Pimlico Shrug in trying to beat the spring season before it arrives here early in the south
plowing thru rows and rows and rows....and rows of ribbing (it has now been dubbed "The Beast"). Hoping to have it finished by the end of this month.

And in food news:

"They" get me every year (as I am certain they got you too!)Lets just say not all of them are in the freezer LOL

My weakness is those darn Samoas a.k.a. Caramel De Lites (back when I sold them as a girl for 75 cents a box!!)

Yeah we will see how long they will "live" in the freezer Haha!

Have a GREAT weekend!! Until next blog time! :o)

    The Samoa cookies are my weakness as well. Love them!
    Not sure how to fix the dropped stitch in your hat. I'm so anal about things of that nature, I usually unravel/frog and reknit the bind-off.
    Can't wait to see your pimlico shrug. I have it on my list of favorites on Ravelry.

    Yummy cookies! Those dang crack dealers...I mean girl scouts.

    I would take an extra piece of yarn and weave it through the stitches, on the backside, making sure you weave that loose one with it.
    Nell said...
    Oh no! I hope someone can help with the stitch issue.

    Thin Mints are the best. Frozen with vanilla ice cream... yum!
    Adrienne said...
    I have NO idea how you can fix it but I hope someone is able to help!!

    They have NOT gotten me! I haven't seen any and I am HOPING that Tony hasn't ordered a case from someone at work! LOL

    Enjoy your weekend!

    I wish they had GS cookies in France. Yum.

    Take a deep breath girl it's an easy fix. Just thread a tapestry needle with some leftover yarn, weave the thread along the seam (same as if you were weaving in threads that are hanging on any knitted piece)pull the needle through the loop of the stitch and keep weaving the tread along the seam. If that seem is on the inside all I would do is sew that stitch onto the seam, make a knot with the yarn and again weave in the yarn along the seam. HTH.
    Liz said...
    Oh no!! Just sew it in with a tapestry needle.
    Those look yummy, thanks goodness we can't get them here....I'm giving up chocolate for Lent next week and my body is madly trying to cram in as much as it can before Wednesday!!!!
    Have a good weekend.
    Ava said...
    I agree with the directions you've gotten to weave it in.
    melissaknits said...
    yarn scrap, catch loop, weave in!!

    I am glad, in a way, that my gluten free status prevents me from being able to eat GS cookies. I am also deeply saddened by that!!
    Carmell said...
    i would have left it alone!! pulled it thru something!

    i didn't get any girl scout cookies this year... damn i would really love some Samoas!!!
    muchadored said...
    I would just tack it down. You can pull the last loop through to the wrong side and tack it on that side if you're worried about creating a noticeable bump.

    Also, Samoas might be my favorite cookie ever. Holy cow are they good!
    Cas... said...
    I'm a crocheter so I don't have any advice unfortunately. But it appears you have been given some good suggestions. I hope it helps.

    I used to be a girl scout too. I liked the trefoils personally. I'm not a big chocolate fan. I've tried the samoas but they tend to be a bit much for me!

    Your shrug is coming along nicely too. I hope you finish it in a timely manner.

    Happy Munching!
    Channon said...
    Frozen thin mints. Sigh.

    Glad to see you've gotten plenty of good advice on how to fix the hat.
    Dave said...
    If I were ever presented with such a problem (not that something like that would ever happen to me -- no, no, not me!!) I would just catch the loop with some waste yarn, pull it through to the back, and then weave in the ends as inconspicuously as possible. Not that I've ever done that personally myself -- no, no, no. :-)
    Working Mom Knits said...
    My advice would be needle and thread - stitch the dropped guy back into place.

    Re the cookies - we don't have 'em yet but I'm SURE they'll be around next week!

    What Karine said!
    TURBOchic said...
    They were a dollar back when I started selling them in the first grade....
    buttahflychronicles said...
    I love girl scout cookies. But since the guy who sells them around my office won't buy cookie dough from me when I'm peddlin it, I can't buy from him anymore. I need reciprocity with my fund raisers.
    Denise said...
    oh gosh, I think I would just have to use a piece of yarn loop it through that stitch then tie a knot at the back and weave in the ends?!
    Thin Mints are my down fall ;) have a good weekend
    Lynette said...
    sounds like you already have some great suggestions. hope you can fix it soon.

    Thin Mints!!! my favorites - especially frozen. such a tease showing us. no one has accosted me yet. LOL

    have a great weekend.
    knitnsticks said...
    I have those same exact boxes at my house!!!! The Beast is looking quite gorgeous! I LOVE that color.
    diddlinaknits said...
    ahhh you have already been given very good advice-i would have said the same.
    You know-i only end up with Girl Scout cookies if someone gives me a box but that is very rare usually everyone hoards their boxes lol but i never had them at home growing up. Probably for the best my list of sweet addictions is long enough as it is.
    Michelle said...
    OMG Samoa cookiea re my fave, they arrived on wed. morning at work and..um almost half the box was gone before lunch...I think I need to go eat one now actually!
    WandaWoman said...
    You got some great ideas. I'm sure you will be able to get it taken care of. The GS cookies have been ordered and mostly eaten in this house. That's what happens with 2 men, oink, oink!
    knitting dragonfly said...
    I love the Plimco shrug, the beast? Oh no, I haven't cast it on yet. Can't wait to see yours finished! Great blog
    stillpatrice said...
    gs cookies sigh.. i ordered some from the pimps in my office. lol
    turtlegirl76 said...
    Fix it how I fixed the dropped stitch on my noro sweater. Run a scrap of yarn through it on the WS, then weave in the ends. That's all!
    Loren said...
    The cookie monster got me too. The thin mints are my favorites and after the fifth cookie, I gave them to a co-worker. When I sold the cookies, they were 50 cents a box and I could sell cases upon cases to everyone. This was long before everyone became health conscious!
    moo said...
    Samoas are my weakness and I did not buy any!!!! Got Husband three boxes of Thin Mints that I do not care for and Lemon ones and tea cookies for me.
    Susan said...
    I love the short bread the best, then comes the thin mints. Mmmmm - I haven't had anyone come by my door come to think of it.
    Jeanine said...
    I just picked up our cookies tonight. I SELL them at work. DD is a Brownie (:-)
    Renee said...
    Yep - those are the two that get me every year - Samosas and Thin Mints. Dang their tasty goodness!
    Shameka said...
    You are a woman after my own heart. Samoas and Thin Mints are my absolute favorite too!!!
    smariek said...
    Girl Scout Cookies, they're all good! But you sure did go wild with those Samoas. Did you know that Dryers has a Samoas ice cream flavor? I think it's one of those limited edition flavors. I tried it and it was pretty yummy.
