Last night I had to “pull out” about 7 rows of a baby blanket with 187 stitches across (187 x 7 = )
- and by “pull out” I mean slowly unknit every stitch because it was a complicated pattern with a lot of YOs, K2togs, etc. and I was afraid I would mess up the entire thing.
so I read that Amy had used her Boye’s interchangeables to automatically insert a lifeline as she knit - unfortunately I wasn’t using interchangeables, and mine are Denise’s anyway, so I’m not sure if they would do it -
ANYWAYs - instead I taped my life line to the part of the circ where it gets a little thinner, and then knit as usual and it worked! at the end of the row I had successfully inserted the line which made me feel a little better after making the mistake in the first place.
The only thing to be careful of is that your stitch markers will automatically get threaded onto the life line if you aren’t carefull - you should probably take them out as you knit with the life line and replace them on the next row - or use the kind that open - I should probably get those.
I’m sure the super smarty knitters have done this before but I though I would share my minor moment of glory.
