Sooo...What have we here? Five inches or so of plain stockinette, 50 stitches across. The yarn is a cotton-candy pink cotton chenille; not something I ever would have picked, but in this case the intended recipient of the garment did the picking. The thing you can't see in the photo is how often this poor ball of chenille has already been knit up and ripped out. I couldn't get anything right; the choice of pattern, the stitch, the guage—it's a wonder the yarn has any fuzz left on it. But I *think* I am well and truly on my way this time.
