A true palm-to-forhead moment!

So there I was, on my porch knitting and enjoying myself. The sun was shining, I was in my bikini and the kid was playing peacefully at the other end of the garden.

Maybe it's because my mind was especially clear today because I got to sleep until 11, I have been getting a lot of fresh air and I have been inhaling a lot of steam from the bath I gave the fleece I bought of my moms cousin a few weeks ago.

After knitting 110 rows of the chart for one stocking and 98 rows for the other one, counless hours spent with this pattern, I suddenly noticed what was written in the legend for the chart. The x box: purl. The blank box: knit through the back loop! Through the back loop, people...

Crap! I'm getting the cherry liqueur and some chocolate right now! I think I need ice-cream too!

Oof. I have a hard time with just figuring out what knitting thru the back loop means!
