So I'm knitting this morning before work, meticulously working on my sister's Jaywalker, and something awful happens. Keep in mind I'm working on the toe decreases, making me almost done with the first sock. I decide to count my stitches on each needle, making sure they match up with the pattern, and I have an extra stitch on one of the needles. Being a total perfectionist, I decided to rip a few rows to try to correct the problem. Big mistake. I've been trying to put the stitches back on the needles, and I keep losing stitches! So I rip some more, lose a few more stitches, rip some more, etc. See what's going on here? Now I'm at a point where I can't figure out how to get the stitches back on the needles in the appropriate pattern! I'm absolutely sick about this! I hate the fact that I have to go to work now, and have to just leave this poor sock (still off the needles) to slowly die in my sock knitting back. I need help!!!

What a bummer! Hopefully those stitches will get their act together while you're at work. Good luck getting the Jaywalker back on the needles.

Eeeek! Try this: start at the site where the yarn comes off the stitches. Pull out one stitch, pick it up on the needle immediately and then do that all the way around. That's how I get lace back on the needles. One stitch at a time, baby! ;)

K- I don't want to alarm you, but the same thing happened to me and I have yet to complete my jaywalker, as I ripped it. I will, however, knit a pair -it really is a great pattern. Hope it goes well.
