can you really fix lace knitting when you got drop stitches ???
The only thing that has saved my lace knitting is using a lifeline. I learned that here, of course! Go here http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php and scroll down to the "Fixing Mistakes" section.
I agree. When there's yarn overs and decreases/increases galore, it is next to impossible to figure out what needs to be fixed when a mistake happens. Lifelines are definitely the way to go.
