Did I mention to read the pattern. I just finished a baby bunny blanket, that is actually a very easy pattern. But I had to back out the blanket part all the way once and start over, and then I had to back out the head part all the way and start it all over, and then on my second attempt at the head I did it wrong again!!!
Why, because I didn't read the F%#@ing pattern. I thought I knew what I was doing, I saw the first few words of the row description and I just started knitting. How wrong I was.
I'm sure most of you know this, but for those newbies like me (even though I'm at about 5 months now). I can't stress enough how important it is to read the instructions. Also, if the row is long (like mine was) and pattern changes a bit in the middle, don't read it all at first and just knit the whole row. When you get to the change, re-read it. What you thought it was a few minutes ago when you started the row could be wrong.
Lesson learned on my end.
