I share this opinion. I've been there, done that, I've spent too much time trying to fix it only to frog anyhow. *sigh* Still, I learned things along the way, one of which is that sometimes it's better just to frog and get it over with. I've fixed things and gone on only to realize I couldn't just leave it and frogged the additional rows as well. Some patterns and yarns help hide mistakes better than others. Check out using lifelines, they can help when you do have to frog.

Happiness is catching that dropped stitch while it's still fixable..
