I have one nerve left

Seventy seven stitches on the needles after two rows of a seventy stitch patern:
16 nerves
Discovering I'm a total knitting doofus novice because I think SSK means slip 1 slip 1 knit third stitch:
8 nerves (I'm used to being a doofus)
Frogging twice:
6 nerves
Twisting cast on stitches for socks:
12 nerves
Dropping a stitch when connecting cast on:
2 nerves (discovered it right away)
Finally knitting 22 rows of the sock with no problems:
PRICELESS!

UMMM Dropping a stitch down two rows when trying on the rows:
1263 nerves.
Finding instructions on the internet for and picking up said stitch then indulging in a coffee:


PRICELESS!

What she said lol! I know that crappy feeling, sometimes just best to put the needles down and walk away.

OK...according to this color chart, I bought the yarn pink/purple stripe #5612. I didn't realize there were so many to choose from. :)
