|Has this happened to you? You are knitting a complicated stitch pattern or you’ve just worked a very detailed hem.
The power goes out, or you drop a stitch, or your yarn breaks or something catastrophic happens.
|Plan ahead! Add lifelines at regular intervals|
|Use a double eye needle or a tapestry needle and a smooth, contrasting color yarn.
Run it through each of the stitches of a row. Note the row number or place in the pattern repeat.
|If (when) disaster strikes, you may have to rip … but only to the point of your last lifeline.|
|With each live stitch “secured” with the lifeline, you can pick up stitches and re-hang them on the machine.
Then continue knitting.
|Fewer tears …. guaranteed!
Saved by the lifeline!
