I shook my head when someone else complained that she would put down a piece of circular knitting, pick it back up and start knitting the wrong way. "I'd never do that," I thought. "The yarn is always coming off of my work on the right. I'd surely notice!"

Argh. Apparently not. :wall:

I was wondering why one half of the cuff of the sock I'm making seemed fuller than the other. (FWIW, it's the first one I'm making with sock yarn and size 1 needles instead of worsted.) Sure enough, I count my stitches and I've got two extra rows for about half of the sock. Argh.

So... do I care enough to rip out and start over or can I handle having a slightly higher part of a cuff? It seems like something that will bother me every time I pull the socks out of the drawer.


I guess that's what I get for believing I was too good to make such a "simple" mistake. :roll:

Thanks for the sympathy. Unfortunately, I see where the damage was done, and it quite a few rows back. If I rip out, I might as well start completely over. <sigh> It's just such slow going with this yarn and these needles that I don't know if I can bear to cast on again. Maybe I'll put this yarn aside for a while and go back to my instant gratification worsted weight. :think:

Yup, I've been there done that too. I was working on an afghan too and had several rows to rip out. It was striped and too noticeable to leave. UGH!
