I suppose I knew what I had to do, and just didn't like that idea. I'm not that great at going back. I tend to lose stitches and I'm also not that great at picking them back up.
I've been known to take it back to the last row one stitch at a time, and all the while placing everything onto a smaller needle. And, God forbid I lose a stitch several rows down.....well, that's pretty much the end of that project!
Really I can knit, but if I get into trouble I don't always have someone to bail me out.
Maybe I just need to stick to crochet?!?
I worked for the Transportation Department in Wyoming for 27 years. Casper wasn't in my District because I was in Rock Springs and then later I transferred to Afton, WY, but I knew several people in Casper. Wonderful people in Wyoming.
Have a GREAT New Year and stay warm!
