Yes, you did the right thing. As long as you found it to be right, it was right (go ahead and call me a relativist or humanist or whatever : ). Trust yourself!

I love the train graphics and the new quiz! I'm a combo of 1&4. I tend to read directions ahead to the next step rather than carefully reading all the way through (why bother, I forget it anyway). But I've always been like this so age and hormones are less to blame than my personality & preferred learning style!

Sarah

YES, you did the right thing. You HAD to use the right needles, after that big long math-oriented discussion we slogged through last week!!!!

Karen

Oh I can relate....I am definitely #4...I have lost count (read I can't remember) of how many times I read a certain direction and then promptly forget it. I thought it was just me! I either would have done it over... or burned it... one or the other.

In my case, the "certain age" of which you speak is 29.

Will I know my own name by 50?

Doubtful.

I ripped out the hubby sock for the FOURTH time today and as a reward for my diligence, I bought myself 665 yards of undyed natural grey alpaca. I'm going to make socks out of that instead. Overkill? Perhaps.

Do I care?

Not so much. Good luck with your triangles...again.

Linda

You did GOOD! It's hard to go back and do it right but you will be glad you did. I am in process of reknitting a whole sweater because I hated the way it turned out. Too wide.

Teresa

I would have ripped it out and fixed it too, probably at least once more. It is possible I would have ripped out the base row too just because I was on a roll ripping it out.
Your really getting your money's worth from this yarn knitting the same thing over and over.

Sonja

My god, that's MY train too!

I was working with Lion Brand MicroSpun (a slow-knitting sport weight) to make a small bag, and frogged the first 4 rows *6 times* before I was happy with it. That's nothing compared to your entrelac, but it *did* take a long time.

Oh, and I'm a number 3 - but now that I know to use bulky yarn and big needles, it actually calms my blood pressure to knit. :)

Brenda

You are too funny! Unfortunately, this sort of thing has happened to me as well. So annoying when you know it is your own fault, much better to blame it on the pattern or an interruption or something.

ann

that entry is so funny and it makes me feel better to know that there are other knitters out there just like me! love your site!!

Laura S

LOL Sharon!! Bless your heart. I too would have ripped it out, but that had to be soooo frustrating. You're past it now though, and I'm sending wishes for nothing but smooth sailing from here on out...

Oh, and I think I'm a combination of #3 and #4. Too funny!

Michelle

At least you had the good sense to rip before going any further. I pretend like it doesn't bother me, then inches later it keeps gnawing at my brain until I throw it down in frustration and get one of my children to frog it- they think that's more fun than knitting for some reason. And if it makes you feel any better, I asked the Magic 8 Ball if you sould rip, and it replied "Signs Point to Yes"

Vera

I'm mistake maker #1, and I'm female. Most of my mistakes are because I tend to gloss over the directions, get in trouble, read the directions carefully, then frog, and get back to the project.

What a time you've had with the triangles although I certainly would have done the same. Looking back, I have gotten some of my best lessons from frogging and reworking although it's hard at the time.
