Haha! I've done this too many times and I always regret it! I can tell I'm screwing up when I'm drinking but then I think, "oh I'll just tuck that piece in" or "I'm sure no one will notice that" or "hey where did that extra stitch come from? Oh well I'll just k2tog right here and then hey! We're even again!"  The next morning it's never a pretty sight!  I just did this 2 nights ago actually.  It always seems like a good idea at the time.  I had to just frog the whole project I'd been working on.  Um, dpns and color changes while watching a movie and knitting drunk is not a good idea.   Roll Eyes

Hey, Coral, I actually think you're onto something here! Maybe this is just the attitude we knitters need when attacking a new technique. The first piece might look like hell, but it would anyway. This way there's no anxiety and lots of confidence. Perfect!

Oh man! If I was drinking while learning a new technique, I'd probably just drop a bunch of stitches and get frustrated!  lol

Get some yarn! Jewelry! YARN!

Actually, there IS a fine for KUI ... frogging! That's a LOT heavier than $$ for me!!!!

Haha, too funny! I'm glad I'm not alone. And yes, I was even thinking to myself how pretty the lace looked and how it was such an easy stitch pattern. So silly.

The girls I work with and I (I work at a weaving and fiber studio, otherwise known as The Best Job Ever) were joking about doing a nice, quiet, calm drinking power hour and then letting ourselves loose on the projects on the looms.  My boss vetoed.

Try to remember. It's only a game.

The sad thing is, I've totally done that while sober.
And I wonder why I have so much trouble with lace knitting!

Slighty off-topic, but just a few days ago I got drunk and went to my LYS. Yeah. Had to return what I had bought the day after. Well, to be honest, that probably wasn't because of having been under the influence - even when sober, I probably wouldn't have figured out the yarn was too dark for cables to show.

But I had SO much fun thinking to myself: drunk people do bad things and break all the promises they've given themselves, right? So why not go yarn shopping, though I've decided I'm on a strict yarn diet?
