I just got my yarn earlier in the week and have started this sweater three times... yep, three times. First, somehow, mysteriously, I twisted the stitches. I really thought I was paying attention. The second time I was so enamored with the way the Cash Iroha was just flowing through my fingers I started knitting looser... and looser. (I don't think looser is a word!) When I went to check my gauge, I was knitting 13 stitches to 4 inches. Yipes!
Hopefully the third time's the charm.
