Thanks for the compliments, everyone! :aww:

I prefer the 1x1 ribbing, though I don't know that I like the look of it as well as I like the 2x2 ribbing. But the 1x1 stays up better, and feels more...

That makes sense to me.

Since I have 63 sts now (not exactly sure how that happened [still learning to p/u sts, is my guess!], but that's what I've got), it doesn't look as though I'll need to...

Thanks, suzeeq! That's a great idea, and I'm not sure why I didn't think of it myself. Swatch and block - duh!
