How can we fully appreciate the pure joy of a perfectly knit piece if we never experience the pain and sorrow of a dropped stitch? That which does not kill us makes us frogger.....I mean, um, STRONGER.
My condolences to you. I'm working on my first sock and I'd just die if that happened to me!!! :( finally finished the first part of the leg (you know work rows 1-16 twice) Well I've done it once!! Slow, slow,slow. Keep us updated on your progress.
