lifeline

i'm going to have to use lifelines.  i've started on a hooded pullover and after finishing the ribbing i was sure i was going to blaze away on the back panel........somehow i managed to drop an extraordinary number of stitches so i start ripping back but got carried away and ripped much farther than i had intended.  oh well,  i'm probably going to put in a lifeline every 5 row from now on.   maybe i'll do a clog.....tho' as slow as i've been, lately, it'll take me a year to finish just one.

it sucks that having to work for a living takes sooo much time away from the needles.

Brian, you said it!  I've been so obsessed with knitting lately that I find myself almost getting mad at many of the other activities that are part of my life.  All I want to do is knit!

If you decide to do clogs, be sure to share your experiences.  I've now started for the 3rd time on them.

hi lars.  well, i think there may be more than one definition.  when i'm doing something that i'm sure i'll have some mistakes in the making of it......after i successfully complete 5 or 6 rows without incident i'll pull a piece of waste yarn a few inches longer than the piece is wide (in a loud contrasting colour) thru the stitches so if i make a mistake further on i can just rip back to the 'lifeline.'   i sometimes get carried away and will rip back further than i intend to.   hope this helps.
