Knitting help?

I am currently knitting a chevron blanket. Some stitches fell off one of the needles. I put them back on but it did not look right. Still doesn't. I tried to fix it on my own but I can't do it.

In the US I could go to a local knitting store for help, is that OK here? Or can someone help me.

Re: Knitting help?

It's next to impossible to help you without seeing the knitting. But I am sure, that every shop will be glad to give you some guidance.

Bumping this, hopefully a local knitter will spot it and help!

Otherwise, follow simplon's advice and ask in your local yarn shop.

In the future put in a 'lifeline' (google it), just the thing in cases like this! Happens to the best of us, and rescuing lace and other complicated stitches is really difficult without one.

Re: Knitting help?

I was worried that it would be hard for someone to help me. I went to a knitting store in Luzern yesterday but my German was not good enough to explain what happened.

I will be in the US next weekend so I will take it in to a knitting store when I get there.

Thank you for your help! I will search for lifeline on google. Google and YouTube have been really helpful for me.
