As a newbie knitter, I make a lot of mistakes.
And I have spent countless minutes, perhaps hours, pulling
a piece apart in order to fix a mistake.
Thank goodness for a good teacher who taught her students
that pulling out hours of work can be prevented ... in most cases.
I tend to knit fast. Aided by the continental method and spending decades
of crocheting, I'm a bit of a speed demon.
Consequence of knitting speed is a periodic skipped stitch.
I used to rip out the row ... now I know what to do!!
First, isolate the stitch:
Next, grab a handy crochet hook and slip into loop:
Pull missed yarn through the loop:
Now I'm ready to slip fixed stitch onto working needle,
making sure the "twist" is right (counterclockwise):
And now the stitch is all better!
Sorry for the blur of the photos ... I used the automatic "close up" setting of my camera,
but it choose to focus on the background rather than the object.
Something to do with f-stop or some other photographic gobblety-gook.
I think I need a new camera!!
