View Full Version : I knew better but didn't do it anyway

:waah: I have read about lifelines and thought they were a good idea but did I do it? NO!! I am trying to finish a palindrome hat for my granddaughter for Christmas and I was almost finished. But I get to round 4 on the decreasing and figured out that I deciphered the insturctions wrong for the last 3 rows. I could have and should have done a lifeline or at the least I should have read and read the instructions but they seemed pretty straight forward. I'm not normally so stupid that I can't get the instructions. But instead I apparently preferred to frog way past just so that I could be sure that the hat would not be lopsided. I cannot believe how stupid I am!!

There got that off my chest.

Would it make you feel better to know that I frog almost at much as I knit?? :roflhard:

Just think of it this way: you can tell your grandaughter you love her enough that you knit her a hat ... TWICE! ^_^

Deep breathe dear and have a nice cuppa! We have all thought we could do it without and have had it proven to us otherwise.

Oh well, just consider the first attempt a practice run. I do it all the time.

In the wee hours of the morning yes but after I've finished the hat and had some sleep no.
