Oops!

Last night I thought I was making such great progress on my Aquitaine Cuffs, and was nearing the end of the charts, when I noticed the little *** symbols by the row number.  Oh no!  I had wondered why my first hooked bead wanted to sit at an angle, but figured it was the double decrease, and kept going.  Later, I noticed that the decreases seemed a stitch offset from where it looked like it should be on the chart, and still I kept knitting.  Why?  Because I was trying to follow a chart and knit, while watching a sub-titled movie!  I almost didn't do it, but couldn't stand the idea of sitting and watching the movie without something to keep my hands busy.  Lesson learned, and next time, I'll choose something that is either garter stitch,  a hand applique project that is either already basted into place and I can just stitch, or something else that is super easy, that I can just keep going!  At any rate, here's where I discovered what I did wrong, and now I need to rip back to that first hooked on bead (or maybe a row or two more, once I carefully compare the chart, instructions and my work):-(

Happens to all of us who knit-it is a paage we all have to visit every now and then!

we were just having this conversation at my spinning group today - can't knit and watch a movie with sub-titles.
