Rip Back

I just had the most heart stopping experience of my knitting career. I'm currently knitting my first "real" test knit for someone. I want it to be perfect. Well, I found a glaring mistake a few rows down and had to fix it. I contemplated dropping down the errant stitches, but there was too big of a mess so I took out the needles (size 0 circs) and began to knit back. As I grabbed the second circular, the whole needle came undone. The cord had come unattached from the needle. I usually have a plethora of extra circulars in all sizes. The exception to this seems to be size 0. I shoved the cord back into the needle and will attempt to super glue it later. For now, I can use it to pick up the 66 stitches needed back unto a needle. The yarn is also a little on the splitty side, so that will made it all the more fun.
On the plus side, I've really enjoyed knitting this pattern. The construction is very interesting, and I can't wait for the book to come out to try some of the other patterns.

Wow! Makes my attempt at the "princess foot" on my swap socks seem pretty insignificant! Good luck!
