To Block or Not To Block -- That's One of the Questions

My Clapotis is off the needles. It has been off the needles for awhile but I had to clear off my KNITTING TABLE of DOOOOOM, so I could spread it out and take some pictures. I used Brooks Farm Solana (Ravelry) and did 8 straight sections. I have a little leftover ... I need to weigh it so I can see if I could've gotten another straight section.


Isn't it beautiful? But do you see the mistakes? Let's look a little closer.


How about little closer?


Yup -- I forgot to drop a stitch.



Any suggestions on how I can fix this? I didn't notice until I had bound off all the stitches.

I know that most folks aren't blocking their Clapotis, but I think that it would look a little better if I get rid of the serious curling on the corners. Any thoughts?

It is lovely! I am kicking myself for not buying any of that Brooks Farms stuff at Stitches. I have no idea how to fix it, though. Seems like you could cut some stitch somewhere, but I'm not sure how.

I would cut the upper stitch, knot that, and then unravel. If it's a splice able wool, you can do that. Personally, I'd splice on longer pieces and weave those in.
