My younger son had swim meets yesterday and today in the AM, so I thought what a great opportunity to get going on my Picovoli sweater! I have swatched and washed/dried the swatch (which ended up giving the same results as the swatch but it was the right thing to do)…soooooo I cast on yesterday…get to about cast on 100 out of 140…oops too short, so start over. I get casted on do a few rows life is good.
Today I am moving merrily along on this project…there is a part where you KFB in front of and after the markers… No worries, working along…and then I got distracted…dropped a stitch…right at the KFB point…tried to fix. Problem got worse…and worse and worse. Ironically, I had just been thinking…I should put a lifeline in here so I don’t have to do this stupid cast on again!
I finally gave it up. I can fix dropped stitches now (yay me) but not dropped stitches at the KFB point. I ripped. HOped I could pick up maybe a few rows below, nope the damage I had done with my attempted fix was irrevocable. Will start again tonight. Will insert lifeline next time.
So, when knitting in the circular, how do you do a lifeline??? Just pick any random point and insert the thread around? And next question…I am doing this on 5’s on my Denises…is dental floss perhaps the best thing to do???
