I spent the evening fixing mistakes.
I discovered that knitting the first stitch of every row makes me more liable to make a mistake on the 2nd stitch, but only one one row. I thought I found two stitches that were knit instead of purled, but after I dropped the stitches down and picked them back up TWICE, I found more--I had to drop all the way down to the ribbing! Oh well. It's fixed and I prefer fixing to frogging!!! My fronts are now 11.5", so not much progress today.
