First, I spent too much
Finally I got around to knitting two repeats. I should backtrack and say that I had stopped using stitch markers at Round 18 which means I have to count every stitch and/or watch my knitting closely. I also hadn't put a lifeline in the last six rounds [72 rows]. Getting too cocky, that's for sure! On Row 10 of the second repeat I realised I'd made a mistake and started to tink back just a few stitches. Then 'it' happened. I looked down and saw a big hole in my knitting! Fortunately it was only two rounds below but it was still there and getting larger as I watched! Quickly I had my capable assistant [aka DD] pass me a safety pin and grabbed the offending six stitches. They had been one but had decided to go their separate ways in their bid for freedom! I had obviously dropped one when tinking back in an earlier row. Well, three hours later [including time for dinner] I had tinked back to that hole and an hour and half later I was back to where I was when I saw It!
So total for the day: knit two rounds, tink two rounds, knit two rounds! Total = 36 rounds [of 40]!
