What was I thinking?

This is the lace for the bottom of the shell. I am almost done with the 23 rows x 300 stitches (knitted in the round) and now I see a bad patch that starts 5 rows down. I am going to attempt to fix this situation but if not I will have to frog it. Hope not.
Once I fix this minor thing it will be all stockinette for a while and with any luck I will not screw that part up.
I may need to slow down on my knitting for just a little while. I am making to many mistakes lately.
I thought I was going to finish the never ending yelllow sweater tonight so I was matching the fronup with the back to see how it was coming and noticed that I missed an armhole decrease on the back, which just will not do. This means taht I will have to from the back and redo it. I already did that on the front. I usually focus better than this.
All is no lost though. I will just have to take a deep breath and focus on one thing at a time. I need to get the yellow sweater done so I am putting the shell aside until I am finished.

I know what you mean about slowing down your knitting. I was getting a little burned out on my shawl and now I am knitting mittens. If I could just focus, I could finish my shawl, but I really feel like I need a little break. Please keep us posted on your progress!

Oh Carol, I know exactly what you mean. Having had to frog over 1/2 of my cable purse, due to forgetting to at the appropriate time on 2 cables, I can see the merits of focus. Otherwise, if you get in too much of hurry, you just end up redoing it anyway.

Thanks for the support.

Sometimes there is nothing else to do but frog.
