knitting and crochet tip of the day Tuesday

Read your knitting! Read your crochet!

Profusely admire your finished row or round and train your eyes to read the finished stitches. Count if you must, it saves frogging heartaches later!

Lace patterns, increases, decreases and closing the round after casting on are recipes for mistakes if you don’t look the worked stitches over to make sure you did as told.

Today was one of those days at the studio when the finished rows had not been sufficiently admired. In one case, yes fixable, the second one didn’t fare so well, many rows to the frog pond!!!
