I was knitting a sock, and I was a few rows into the toe decreases when my 2yo pulled one of the needles out. (I was using one circular).:doh:
All the little loops kept sucking back into the knitting when I tried to get them back on, and it got in a big mess. So I decided to do the inserting another circular cable needle in the row below, but since there were decreases I couldn’t work out how to do it. I had watched the video where it says just pick up the right loop of each stitch. So I ended up inserting it in the bit before I had started the decreases and ripping the whole toe bit out.
Question: is there a better way? How do you insert a needle into rows below when there are decreases or a pattern to complicate things? Could I have done it without using this trick, as in just reinsert the needle somehow- she hadn’t pulled any out, it just started undoing when I tried to get the needle back in- those little tiny loops kept escaping!
Today was the first day I actually cried over my knitting. I know it’s not that big of a disaster, just a few rounds of a sock, I just haven’t been feeling well anyway.
