it was late at night and all attempts to salvage the stitches were just making it worse, so a little time out was called for.
today i decided to rip back to just below the booboo. i'm not smart enough to use lifelines (i like to knit dangerously), but at least i was smart enough to pick up the row of stitches below the whoops before i started ripping back.
it worked perfectly, and now i'm back on track to start the never ending garter stitches again.
seriously, what was i smoking when i said yes?
oh - and i'm using JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18 i have on a cone as it was the only lace yarn i had enough yardage of. :)
