Aside from just having to rip back about 3 inches to fix my join which was looking dreadful,
I am making progress. Luckily, I've worked with this yarn before and I know the horrible unevenness of the stitching will disappear with blocking. Otherwise, I'd have chucked the whole thing by now. Funny how you have to get to know a yarn and all its quirks. So, not as much progress as there was last night, but one entire ball of yarn used up already--that's a start.
