If this were a race, I just scratched. D’oh! Yeah, I started on my stole, but made a mistake in the fifth row that I didn’t notice for a long while afterwards. Last night while watching movies with friends, I was knitting along merrily. Then not-so-merrily when the stitch count wasn’t adding up. I thought it was just that I can’t knit lace in low lighting, but no! A mistake early on that didn’t become apparent until now. Damn it!
Being a perfectionist (at least when it comes to knitting), I ripped it out today. Restart! This puts me way behind schedule. Might not finish, but at least I’ll be happier with the finished product.
