Your opinions requested

I have almost completed my first pair of longies. However I am having issues with the second leg. Apparently I have been more relaxed and the tension for the second leg has not been as tight so the leg is wider than the first one. My question to you is do I go back to the start of the first leg and do it over, or do I just finish and have odd legs?

Here are some pictures to help you decide.

Here is a closeup of the legs.


Here is a picture of the whole project. I am not all that thrilled with how the second leg is looking color wise either. The first leg striped up nicely but the second is just looking funky to me.


Can you see the sort rows? I have a hard time seeing them and I know where to look. This time around I actually read the directions closely, so they are all where they need to be and nicely centered.

I'd redo the second leg. I like the striping of the first leg better too. :)

You can do a redo ... or wash and block them and see if you can relax that tension?

They look awesome!!! Glad the short rows worked out so well!

Have you seen these ... ?

I would keep on going. But I HATE to rip out. I would want to rip out, but I never would. And then it would languish in my UFO pile until it got outgrown...

I would redo as well! It would bug me every time I looked at them.

I'm sorry to say that I'll have to join the "rip it out" pile on. I know it's horrible and heartbreaking, but if you don't, you'll never actually dress the kid in the pants anyway, and that will be the bigger waste. Try beginning knitting from further into the ball of wool next time and see if that helps the striping any....
