I hear frogs in the distance....
So... things are cruising along nicely except for some trouble spots.
A frogging we will go.
The red circle highlights an interior rib stitch where I purled when I should have knit. It will drive me insane if I leave it.
The red rectangles illuminate errors in yarn carrying. I'm slipping each first stitch rather than knitting/purling because it give a cleaner, flatter edge. If you do it correctly, that is.
Lastly, I measured the bottom edge. The pattern says I should be at 17" for a medium. I think it will be more like 15" after blocking. I may recast for a large. I am at a 36-38 bust but have the shoulders of a linebacker.
Has anyone else measured?
All is not lost, however. I'm really digging the cabling without the cable needles and this preliminary jaunt gave me a chance to "perfect" that method.
Tonight, I begin again.
