Wow! Thanks guys!
I had forgotten all about ssp - thanks for the link, GrumpyGramma!
I have inserted a lifeline and am working the k2tog at the beginning and ssk at the end just to see if I like the full-fashion look. Then I'll rip back and try it a different way. I'm interested to see the difference between the two styles.
Suzeeq, thanks for telling me that I need to mirror the purl side decreases - I was definitely wondering about that!
