Last night I brought back out the baby blanket, and really wanted to get some work done on it.
It had been a while since I knitted on the blanket, so when I picked it up I had to figure where I was in the pattern. After some stitch counting and looking at the pattern I thought I knew where I was. But something seemed a bit off.
I figured I may had just screwed up a stitch and dropped it back and fixed it. Or so I thought.
Knitting along… Wait… that’s not right. So I tinked back and took another look at the pattern. Figuring I was really just a row off, I dropped the “fixed” portion and redid it in what I was certain was the corrected row.
Started knitting again. Still wasn’t right. Tinked back again. Quietly wishing I could have some beer, I studied my knitting and its pattern once again.
Then I realized I was in the completely wrong part of the pattern. Whoops. After that I was completely fine and knitted along. Lets hope I remember where I left off the next time I pick up the blanket.
