Here's a little reminder of why we need to stop to admire our knitting from time to time.
And what to do when we forget !
Generally I try to stop and check the fabric of my knits about every 10-12 rows (unless it's the type of stitch where you will notice right away if you've made a mistake).
but I was enjoying knitting this so much I forgot ....
so just when I was about ready to bind-off I stopped to take a look and spotted this !!! (just above the crochet hook) ....
I've never fixed a mistake so far back before, but thought it was worth a try before frogging back and reknitting.
And also a good opportunity to post about fixing mistakes !
So I dropped all the stitches back down to the mistake (gently - taking care not to stretch the threads while dropping the stitches)
Then I used the crochet hook to work back up
Here's a close-up of fixing a knit stitch - check that the yarn is coming from the stitch next to the one you are fixing, see left side:
hHre's a close-up of fixing a purl stitch - you have to reposition the hook so that you are coming up from behind :
And I'm happy to report that about 15 minutes later all was fixed,
