What's This?

Yes, it's back to row 1. Yesterday I was gaining and losing stitches with alarming frequency, but didn't think the mistakes would be all that obvious after it's blocked, so I continued knitting.

Well, in the harsh light of morning it's impossible to keep deluding myself. So I ripped it all out even before I had the first sip of coffee. It was only agonizingly painful for a minute.

I'm glad to have this chance to start again (glad, I tell you!) because the first version was looking a little too wide. I don't know what the final width will be, but it doesn't need to be more than six inches, and shouldn't exceed eight or nine. Keeping it narrow will make the yarn go further, too.
