Knitting Olympics Day 4: That Pride/Fall Thing

There I was, all smug. Was doing so well on the garter stitch. Maybe it was just such a good episode of Buffy (Season 6 Episode 3, FWIW), but I lost it.

I messed up the simple yo increase at the end of the row, and ended up having to rip back two rows (which at 220-some stitches takes a while).

So it took longer than I'd hoped to get to the lace portion. I've done 4 rows, if you include the one where you just place the markers. Which I do, dammit. And I've only had to rip back two partial rows so far.

I guess lace knitters mustn't watch TV when they knit.
