Good News #1: I got to start my sweater using my beet yarn.
Good News #2: I love the design elements so far.
Good News #3: My sweater is knitting up to exactly the same gauge as my swatch.
Bad News #1: I mis-measured my gauge to be 3.25 stitches per inch, when in actuality it is 4.25 stitches per inch.
I'm getting stressed out about our (second, big) wedding. Is it obvious?
PS. The second mitt was corrected, and the pair awaits blocking. At least that got finished without any other screwups!
