Thought I would share my progress!
this is what I showed you last time

I had a mistake 1/3 of the way through I decided to leave it because it was a lot of work to take it out and speaking to several friends they said nobody would probably notice anyway so I was sitting on Saturday evening finished it off and just as a glancing comment I said to my lovely husband can you see any mistakes and he said erm you want the truth? 
I said yeah I sure do and he said sorry darling but yes I can see just about there pointing to the error that looks totally different 😳
So I decided to frog (rip it out) the work back to the mistake but... being it was 11-30 ish at night I thought I will frog to the error and then start again the next day but as I had finished and sewn in the ends it was difficult to undo.... so struggled on for about 1/2 hour and still could not get the ends out so decided to cut it.... that way I would only lose a row or sooo..

Wrong I make a fatal error and started undoing the wrong end and buggered it up big style
So I have had to un do the WHOLE thing

But Hubby helped me bless he sat on the lounge floor with me and we unpicked and rolled all the balls up.... I am glad hes honest some blokes would have said No what mistake and then I would have regretted leaving it.....
sooooo this is where I am up to now and NO mistakes yay!

I will share the photo when its finished :)
