Grumpy Gable

I don't know what it is about this tee - it's kicking my butt! This seems to be the case with a lot of folks here - there's either issues with sizing, gauge or the lace pattern. Me - it's the lace pattern. Like a lot of knitters, I keep forgetting a YO at the end of the B repeat. So I rip back when I realize my mistake. However, I appear not be too adept at getting the lace stitches back on to the needles - I either drop stitches while I'm doing so, or miss a wrap. So I end up ripping back several rows instead of just the one.

Problem is - I've done this, well, I stopped counting after 10 times. At least 7 times with the now-defunct orange Cotton Ease, and this is now my third rip-back in the Cotton Fleece. Wish me luck that this is my last rip!

I've had the same problem with forgetting the YO at the end of repeat B. I've frogged it 3 times before I finally got it straight. It's frustrating, but once you've got it, it gets a little easier.

Try using a lifeline, then at least if you do have to rip back again it will be easy to pick up the stitches.

I feel your pain. I just ripped it out again last night at the same spot that I ripped it out last time (though not for the same reasons). Usually the 3rd time is the charm for me so hopefully I'll make some actual progress this time!
