Oy vey! I cast on 100+ stitches one time using stitch markers every 10th stitch...and knit away....and when it came time for some interesting pattern work...I discovered I had cast on either 1 too few, or 1 too many. Whatever it was, it ruined things. I frogged and started over. Heavens.
I sympathize ArtLady.
