But I'm happy to report that the Rowan Holiday has knit up nicely and works well with this pattern. With that, I don't feel as bad ripping it out and starting over. I've also decided that I'm going to make it a bit longer in the body before I start the final ribbing. I think this is going to make a really nice top.
The rest of the bad news is I haven't made much progress on Orangina, but the good news is at least I haven't messed it up... yet.
