Well, thank you very much!! I've done it. I'm over the hump, past that third row and now I've done all there is to do, as far as new things. I should be good to finish it! Oh, and do the other side, too. I've learned a lot and I'm so grateful for your help. I'll post a picture when it's done!
It was the yo and mixing knit and purl. I got out the stitch markers and proceeded with awareness and calm, and voila! It came together. Fourth try, I think. And then when I hit the most complicated bit (for me!), slip 2 as if ktog, knit 1, p2sso....It took two tries, but I did it! The rest of the sweater is garter stitch. That will be a picnic!
