The other day a friend and I were happily knitting away when I discovered that I got a little over enthusiastic with my knitting. I had knit the sleeve of my Cassidy a little too long. I set that one aside and worked on the second sleeve. I knew I would have to either tink the other back or rip it back.
Today I pulled the needles out and ripped back. Then I picked up the stitches and made sure my measurement was correct. And it hit me. This isn't the first time I've pulled my needle out of a lot of live stitches, ripped back and then reinserted my needle. I don't remember when I started this, but I do know that somewhere I turned a corner.

In case you are wondering, I do not pull needles out of lace to rip back. That would be crazy!
