I'm such a dope - I never use lifelines. And then I kick myself when I have to pull the needle out and thread it through six rows below where I was.On a side note, I sort of love that combination of red and turquoise!
Ditto with Cory, I never use lifelines! Ha, I also never swatch...Worst knitter ever!
Normally I don't use lifelines...but after knitting the Queen Bee cardigan and then Ishbel, I had lost so many knitting hours trying to go back and fix my problems. So I decided to give lifelines a try, and wow. 5 minutes of time and I'm back on track!Mae: I don't swatch for shawls either. What's the point??
