I'm off to a good start with my Girl Friday Cardigan. The fabric is turning out beautifully, except for the snagged stitch in the 5th row of the ribbing (Thanks to my kittens whom were fighting over the fabric while I was cooking dinner). The pattern is pretty easy to memorize, and knits up fairly quickly. The biggest problem I've had so far has been right at the beginning (yes, in the ribbing ><) attempting to get perfectly even tension among my stitches. I had to rip out, re-cast on and re-knit the first few inches of the ribbing several times. I think I did it like 4 times. Finally I just threw my hands up and decided I had to get this started so to hell with tension. Turns out, that was the right move and I was able to produce even stitches that met my standards. That snag in the middle is glaring at me though. Darn you Kat and Simba!!!! I hope I can fix that up during blocking.
