Life line

Everybody who has done lace knitting knows about life line, but has everybody used it? I haven't ... until now, that is.

I was unsure what size of Maude I should make. Since both sizes S and M have the same number of cast on stitches, I could delay making the decision. When it was time to divide for the body and arms, I decided to go for the small size first. So, I threaded a sock yarn through the front and back, in addition to the arm sections.

Never had I thought I would have so many troubles with the number of stitches afterwards. It took me several ripping to get things right:
The sock yarn added suddenly became my life line! Am I lucky or what?
