I am freaking out. I dropped 2 stitches in my lace knitting I almost cried but I didn't want the guy next to me on the plane to think I was crazy. I don't know what to do. I put the stitches back on but I don't know if the right amount of stitches is right. HELP.

I generally tink back a row or 2 until I'm sure that I have it right.

Start by counting though and checking your pattern to the stitches on the needle. You might be just fine!

Oh, woe...

I can spend countless amounts of time trying to figure out where I made a mistake in lace. I hate frogging lace, so I unknit if I have to. Try Jackie's suggestion. Good luck and I'll be thinking about you.

Oh no... :-( Been there, done that, and I cried and didn't bother hiding it. Can you tink it? Is there a purl row that you can tink back to and check, or is it lace every row? This is why I use lifelines at least every repeat, it has saved my sanity....or what's left of it.

If worse comes to worse, and you didn't pick up the stitches exactly right, see it not as a mistake, but as a feature! (My early lace has a number of features...) Good luck!

Where were you flying that they let you on a plane with knitting needles? My mother got hers confiscated.

I flew Delta airlines To Tenn. then Kentucky. They said knitting needles were fine on airplanes. I had a prepaid self address stamped envelope just in case.
