Has anyone ever done this?

I have a simple pattern for an afghan (nothing but sc) done in a loopy yarn. Sounds easy, right? Well, I found a way to goof it up. After having done countless rows (probably over 2 feet), I laid it on the counter and looked at it closely.

It just didn't look RIGHT somehow. The majority of it was mostly vertical colums, then all of a sudden it looked horizontal. For some unknown reason I turned it and had crocheted on the sides! It had a "border" on it that didn't belong there. So I ripped it all out to a point where it looked ok and have started over. This time I put pins on each side so I won't make that mistake again. I feel like a doofus.
