Very nice. Drop stitches are pretty. I think it's really easy to knit one of the yo's by mistake, I've done it, and maybe that's where your difference in the number of stitches came from. You've got a great idea, small items like this are great for practice, I need to do some.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
