Ok, that may be a bit extreme but it's a very difficult project to start. I believe I had to start over about 10 times. But I think I have the pattern now and since my last post about putting it on the needles 11 days ago, I can report I have almost an inch completed. (And there was much rejoicing. Yea.)
However, I haven't touched Very Cherry much so there is no update to be had for that. Hmpfh!
