Admission of Stupidity

Tonight I outfoxed myself. I learned about lifelines when I was looking for a shawl pattern. I figured that the easiest way to add lines was to just attach them to the hole in the Denise needle and drag it through as I knitted. Worked great the first time when I had only 2 plastic snap-apart stitch marker rings to worry about. When I went up to 22 stitch markers, I switched to tiny rubber bands. Dumb! Dumb! Dumb!

Carried the new lifeline through, then started back on the next row. Oops! Lesson learned. Remove the line. Now I'm threading it through with a darning needle. And avoiding the rubber band markers.

I feel better getting that off my chest. But, I still feel stupid.
