Kilgore_Trout, I have a question. I can see how handling a tapestry needle would be much easier than the long needle, but what do you do if you DO happen to pick up a stitch from the wrong row. I find that I do this no matter how careful I am unless I have a definite stripe to follow. In other words, I make mistakes correcting my mistakes!

Ingrid, Not sure what you mean by "definite stripe to follow", but...
I was working with black yarn so I used bright pink yarn on the tapestry needle so that I could see it easily. I also get paranoid about making mistakes so every couple of stitches I checked my pink "stripe" to make sure it was following the destination row. Usually I could even see if the pink yarn was crooked, meaning I picked up a stich from another row. If you do happen to make a mistake, just go ahead and pull the (pink) yarn out back to your mistake, and no harm done. Key word is PATIENCE!

Oh, I should have known, patience and attention to detail. I seem to have a lot when I'm knitting, but not when I'm going backwards. Thanks for the info.
