All better

Just a few more rows…

And then a little taper at the top (mostly because picking up a whole row of stitches straight is a pain, so I decided I’d just decrease it away and make a curve)…

And it’s done!

Oh, and then at the end I noticed the cable coming off the side was a little frayed, so I took my tail and duplicate stitched over it to be extra safe.

Again, totally not invisible, not subtle, but it will keep the sweater in circulation for a nice long time. I’m trying to decide if I want to do the same thing (more or less) on the other side, or if I want to actually duplicate stitch over the whole elbow (pattern and all) on the other side, or if I want to leave it and see exactly where it wears out.  Either way, it’s totally going back in the closet instead of in the trash, so I think it’s a win!
