What to do.... what to do....

I'm plugging away at my CPH. I've done the back, the left front and half of the right front. I knit the back too long and was a bit concerned about this for a while, but I've come to terms with it now. What IS bugging me though is the single 12 row cable right smack bang in the middle of the back. There's NO WAY I'd consider frogging, but what I AM considering is perhaps pulling out a few rows mid-back and grafting it back together. Am I mad for even contemplating this? I'm pretty good at grafting - it's hard to pick my grafts from amongst other ordinary rows of knit stitches, so I think I'd be able to do it, but I must admit to being very very nervous about chopping out a mid-section of a long piece of knitting!

Urgh! I mean this in the nicest possible way but I am glad it's you and not me....

I will just leave it as it is not obvious - the cables are still showing up very nicely.

oh Sam, let me just say you are not the only one. I've been meaning to tell you that I have my own 12 row repeat :P. Fortunately it really isn't noticeable in the dusk tweed.

I would leave it be...in a kind of only God is perfect Amish kind of way...:D

I like Rach's thinking, Sam LOL
It's on your back you won't be able to see it when you're wearing it and you can always fold it up after you take it off so you never see it much
