I like straight knitting needles. I’m not a fan of circulars, so when I put my knitting away in my bag, I usually have the “live” knitting needle pointing up so when I pull the knitting out of the bag, it doesn’t slide off. Well, I thought I should pack my knitting bag safely this weekend so I had all the needle points facing down. The bag I’m using is zippered and I didn’t think the twins would open it, I just didn’t want them to fall on it and get hurt.
After the twins were tucked in bed, I wanted to show my daughter the Herringbone neckwarmer I was knitting. And as I pulled the needles out of the bag, the needles were naked. The neckwarmer was still in the bag.
I really wanted to say a bad word but I gasped instead.
Normally it’s not that hard to put stitches back on the needles. I only had 30 to deal with. But this stitch isn’t normal. I have about six inches knitted and I haven’t figured out how fix a wrong stitch. I managed to get all the stitches back on the needle but something is not quite right.
I’ll have to wait until this evening when I’m in a better frame of mind to see if I can figure out what went wrong.
Oh Oh……..I wonder what happened? By the time you are finished with this project you will be able to do it in your sleep!
Ugh! I have had the naked needle phenomenon happen to me before and it leaves you with a sinking not so nice feeling. I hope you can work it out!
I am going great guns on your purse too. I am about to finish the striping section. Getting ready to knit on it now for abit and to work on the final section!
Hope you can figure out the sequence. I would have to start over. Good luck.
Oh My. I can’t imagine. This is exactly how I stop projects and move on to something else.
