As a matter of fact, I am using the Basket Rib Hand Towel pattern -- is that the same one that you were doing?
It's about 10 inches wide and has two too many stitches on it (so the pattern is not even) and I'm looking to frog and restart again.
I've never frogged a pattern so many times (and for no good reason)! I must be reluctant to finish it and let it go.
I shouldn't be, since I want to make at least one batch of six matching placemats.
