What would you do?

So last night I was knitting away on the second fingerless mitt and saw a hole!!!!  Can you see it, in the upper right?  When I was knitting, there was a bad spot in the yarn (one of the plies had broken) but I was tired and didn't think it would matter.  Last night reality smacked me in the face! RATS!!

The yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash.  Can I mend that place on the back side?  Should I just suck it up and tink, break the yarn on the side of the hand so it doesn't show as much and re-knit??

What would you do?

  1. I'm just a novice when it comes to knitting, but I think either unknitting back to that row and beginning with a new piece of yarn from there, or using a crochet hook and seeing if you can manuever the plies of the yarn to cover it up., If the mittens are sturdy and won't get washed a lot, it may hold up. Bummer. I saw a tutorial on the invisible knot that you can do when joining two pieces of yarn that I would try in this instance, even though the pros say never to use knots.
