When Knitting Attacks:(43:48)

Gigi : wasn’t paying attention, she started knitting mid row ended up with a loop of yarn, all stitches on one needle

Looked at Andrew s bag of socks.  Knitted one that doesn’t have a second skein 

Xmas socks: first sock turned out too short.  Undid the Kitchener, picked up stitches below toe decreases and ripped 

Misplaced one of the flexi flip needles 

Second sock for Sam’s girlfriend: ribbed the whole leg instead of just 2”

Pulled back. Knitted 4 more inches then turned the heel. Neglected to do heel increases
