I had a moment this weekend. I started Reid’s second sleeve, and I just didn’t feel like pulling out my lovely assorted stitch markers, so I worked on it for a few rows without them.
And I have found that I don’t need them. The pattern made sense. I can see where things are supposed to fall, so I know when something’s not right! The worst mistake I made was to forget a YO, which is just about the easiest mistake to fix when you only forget it 2 rows down. And since I’m knitting with cotton, the holes all even out and you can’t tell.
Which is how I’ve been able to knit on the sleeve and watch 3 movies. Yes, I have to keep the chart handy, but I’m not looking at it every other stitch.
Now as long as I can keep from dropping stitches, I’ll be good. I haven’t been using a lifeline, either.
