Learn from my mistakes

I have for some time been wanting to knit a bobbled dish rag from the Mason Dixon book. I had the perfect yarn from Lisa ( http://saratogaknitting.blogspot.com/), my spoiler for the Secret Pal 9. I thought it would be a nice challenge. A little too challenging for my addled brain as it turned out. I cast on 150 stitches, purled and then made the bobbles. There were supposed to be 6. I had more than 10. I read the pattern again. And then again. And then again.

Here is what it said: *k12, mb (make a bobble),k12* Repeat to end. Can you guess what I did wrong? I'll put it in the comment section.

Here's what I did:
k12, mb, k12, mb, k12, mb, k12, mb ... until I got to the end and realized I didn't have the right number of stitches to end the row.
What I should have done:
k12, mb, k 24, mb, k24, mb.. etc. and then knit the last 12 stitches.

The worst part was I almost made the same kind of mistake 2 rows later LOL

Eek, could it be fixed or did you have to visit the frog pond? Rippit, rippit. (blah, don't like frogs)

That green is pretty, will be a nice springy color to brighten those dishcleaning chores!!

I don't even want to think about how many times I have done this!
