Rookie mistake

I’ve made a rookie mistake. I can’t believe it. I have knit on the lace cowl and it’s been taking forever. Then the other day I felt I had gotten closer to the end. Today I had some unexpected knitting time and all of a sudden, the last part flew by and I was missing a smaller needle and couldn’t do the last part. That cowl could have been finished by now but it’s not, due to a needle left at home. I should know that if it takes two hours two knit eight rows during the middle of the project, those eight rows are done in about two minutes towards the end. I should know better. Basically I should just put everything I need to finish a project in the project bag and I didn’t. That’s just… wrong.
