Lifelines work for me
I've heard that lifelines are for sissies. And I have believed that and failed to use them. The problem with that is not that I make mistakes and need the lifeline to rip back to. The problem is that I leave my knitting on the arm of the chair. I'm not always careful to pull my knitting onto the cords so more often than seems reasonable, I come back to find that the needle has slithered out. If I put lifelines in, the escaped stitches have a place to stop which means I don't have to rip back to correct for my stupidity. I can just ladder them back up.
My MS3 would have been a pile of yarn several times over. And I probably would have quit. Fortunately, I've been reliable about the lifelines at least so I'm almost through Chart E.
I do wish I could remember to take pictures of things.
