Why not thread the life line on a needle and insert it a couple of rows under the "accident"? Do it on a purl row (in good light so that you don't miss a stitch) and you should have a perfect place to rip down to....

Argh! Oh, I am sorry. I am trying my first lightweight lace (Swallowtail Shawl) and first hardest step was having pointy enough needles. Then as I was knitting along I remembered you had made a comment about cables and how complicated they seemed - or something similar... while knitting the lace, honestly - cables are easier and the yarn is thicker. I am using a life line that is periodically thrown in - I will take your tip to heart - you may have helped one knitter out there avoid your pit fall. Honestly on my project I would just start all over. Those stinking teeny tiny stitches...

Oooh, I missed Paige Mackenzie! Gorgeous.

Well, you don't sound very devastated. In fact you sound somewhat relieved. Was Freud right? If so, nexxxxt!

What is a lifeline?

Can we apply the concept to events in real life?

Karen

Oh yuck. Been there...That made me cringe just reading that.

I have never knitted lace, so I can't be of any solace. Sorry. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. And I love the attitude about guys. Nexxxxt.

Wow. This is a sad story indeed. Lesson learned, I'm sure.

Will be interested to find out when/if/what decisions are made. Meanwhile, find something fun, colorful and easy to knit for solace.

Some things turn out to not be fun enough, and that's OK if/when it happens. You'll figure it out sometime.

And big thanks for coming to our concert last night. It meant a lot!
