Ugh I experienced the "joy" of ripping out last night. What should have been a one row 5 minute fix ended up costing me about 10 rows and half an hour, and I consider myself fortunate that it wasnt worse. I have a problem with the stitch on the end when I rip out, the rest I can seem to figure out, and get back on the needle correctly but that one blows me away every time :(

Sorry it was a bad experience, but I'm sure you will be glad you went through the trouble . Depending on what you are making and how, mistakes are hard to cover up, and after all that work, you want it to look amazing.

Well, AFTER I posted that, I re-watched Amy's video....and wouldnt you know, I went to a swim meet today, and ended up having all my stitches fall off the needle....thank God I had watched it, or else I would have been totally fuzzled.....its a quicky scarf out of that "Divine" yarn, which is fun and cheap and totally not forgiving.....got all stitches back on the needle first time and only lost one row.

Unfortunately I do agree....in order to learn how to fix the mistakes, we gotta make LOTS of them!!!

I don't know ... I guess I've made enough of some mistakes to be able to fix most of them!
But sometimes I have to rip out a few rows and reknit it! I figure it's all a part of the territory and the ability to fix them will get better over time? I hope!

Practice makes "almost perfect"!! My most major experience was making a mistake with my 2nd try on circular needles while knitting my first totebag...had to unravel about 4 rows...now, that's practice when you're trying to put 110 stitches back onto circular needles!!
