frogging without fear

So I was right! I read about it on the Knitty boards, where someone provided the link to the Knitty issue of Techniques with Theresa that explained this awesome, awesome technique.

It was time consuming to put the stitches on the needle, but I used a needle one size smaller and that definitely helped. I was worried about splitting the stitches, but all told, when I pulled it out, only a few were split and it didn’t affect anything.

I hooked the yarn up to my ball winder and just turned and turned and turned it and when it got to the designated row, it stopped! And then I just started knitting! No frustrations, no risk of dropping a stitch. Yay for the online knitting community.

    I agree, the most valuable stuff I’ve learned online has to do with what to do when I make mistakes. I can undo individual stitches to fix misakes several rows back, I use lifelines, and I have also used the technique you just described. In the past I just would have given up and tossed the whole thing in a drawer for 6 months. Yay for the cyber knitting community!
