My progress as of bedtime Sunday . . .
That's 7 rows of 396 stitches.
It took me longer than it should have, because I counted and recounted the cast-on row, and then dropped a stitch (or two?) and had to count again! At one point Lauren (home for the 4th weekend in a row--yay!) counted for me because I had nodded off for just a moment--just long enough to lose my place. Good grief!
Anyway, you can probably see the beginning of the lacy edge. I'm hoping to finish 15 more rows today. Then I'll decrease to 266 stitches. Every eighth row will include more decreases, so the project should move more and more quickly as I go. We'll see . . .
