it's all about the process
Oh no! you had gotten so far!!I do this sometimes, like I simultaneously drop a needle and step on the yarn and un-do several rows. Because I'm such a painfully slow knitter, this has nearly reduced me to tears on more than one occasion. I've found it helpful to keep some super skinny needles around to catch these mistakes before they go too far.Good luck re-starting! Chalk it all up to firmly cementing that muscle memory for knitting!
