A couple of pictures of the progress so far (about 18 inches). Ripped out 3 times during first two inches, but back in the rhythm now. A little too uneven for a present, but it’s getting me back in shape. Some color segments of this yarn are a little thin/hard/inelastic compared to others, which makes it tough to keep an even gauge (the palest gray-blue especially). Would recommend sticking to a softer yarn for this pattern.
