Knitting realisation

When you tink (tink = knit spelled backwards = un-knit) and re-knit a row five times before realising that you do not have the requisite number of stitches and so have got the increases wrong rows ago and that you cannot see well enough to tink any more it is easier and saner to frog (ribbit = rippit = rip it out) and start again when you can see better. Especially when it is only the toe of some socks (two-at-a-time magic-loop) and will only take a little while to get back to where you were.

Note to self: use lifelines even more often now that your vision is getting worse.
