I did it!
I just fixed a problem in my knitting without ripping! I'm making the Thuja Socks from Knitty for my sister, and they're in a seed-stitch rib, meaning that every fourth stitch is in seed stitch. On examination, I discovered that one of my seed-stitch columns had skipped a row, or I had knit instead of purled. Not wanting to frog, I just unraveled that stitch down to below the mistake, and painstakingly fixed each row. And now it looks great!

Sorry, no pictures, my camera is still packed from my honeymoon.

Nicely done! That's a trick worth learning--definitely better than frogging!

WAY TO GO!!!!! That is so exciting when you fix a mistake without having to rip it all out. It is almost like winning the lottery. Not that I would know anything about that.
