11 more rows done, no more mistakes, and a second lifeline in use! But I did come across the stitch from hell that even Amy's video said was rare for a decrease and not at all intuitive! It was P2togtbl! Really, I think if I'd had more knitting experience I'd have left this pattern alone! They say ignorance is bliss but in this case ignorance was just plain ignorance!
The yarn is also coming out darker than I expected. The photo of it on this thread makes it look quite light, but in reality it's knitting up quite dark with lighter highlights. I don't think it suits the pattern but it could be one of those things that looks a lot better finished than in progress.
