I was knitting the Kinetic shawl (found on Knitty.com) in my classroom, and one of my friends approaches me and says “That’s really long! Can I see?”. I hand the needles to her (I was in the middle of the row) and indicate her to be careful. Of course, she wasn’t.
My friend snatches the needles, and starts trying on the shawl, while I desperately tried to grab them back. Once I finally managed to recover my needles, I saw what I loathe the most in knitting: dropped stitches. They were about 8 stitches; most of them dropped 1-2 row/s. I glared at my friend, grabbed my crochet hook and began picking up the stitches.
Don’t you just hate when someone does this to your knitting?
