Need some advice here! Working in the round on a hat....
Left the house to run an errand. My point protectors fell off but it looks like I didn't lose a stitch. But I DID lose my stitch marker and it didn't occur to me to put it back on! I'm such a dolt.

Now, the other issue is that I am using Muench Touch Me on Addi Turbos. Not only slippery, but VERY hard to count rows-those little "v"s aren't easy to see on this stuff (and of course I haven't been keeping up...well, I was but that was before I got distracted)

I'm making a toddler/baby hat, CO 72 on sz 7 needles. I think I'm on about R14 but can't swear to it. I have to do 20 rows in stockinette before I start decreasing.

Should I wing it and keep going? It's not for a gift, it's really as much for practice as anything else.

Keep going. The beginning of the round is where your tail is, so that can guide you there, but 20 rows before decreasing can be considered more of a suggestion--it's the total length that really matters in this case, not the number of rows.
