You see, that's an example where I would personally prefer to re-knit it! I can't imagine handling more than one increase--I think the headache would just be too much for me! Plus, you have to wonder about the resulting garment. It might have the right number of stitches, but it would still be the same width as before. When you knit the next row, it might ruffle a bit, like you just added 8 stitches on that row. Right? I would think.... ???
But it's interesting to hear you say you'd be up to the task! Perhaps this is one of those personal questions, where each knitter has their own preference... not surprising I suppose!

"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
