Back to square 1
I'm loving Cozy - really enjoying the yarn, the pattern, and how things are looking. But 2 repeats in I realized that my edges do not match each other. One edge is more of a chain and the other is more bumpy (like garter ridges). I was slipping the first st purlwise but not compensating at the end by knitting the last st of each row. And since every other row is a purl row, well, that accounts for the difference.
So I'm wrapping this baby back into the ball this very moment. Waah.
I'm kicking myself for this, and for forgetting that white/cream yarn doesn't felt well. I love my little purse but wish that part of it had come out better. It does look better than in the picture, though. I should've taken better shots, b/c IRL the flap is not crooked like that.
I think the most frustrating part of unraveling Cozy is that this is likely to count as my knitting time this morning. Happy Monday morning.
