Finished! I must just need to be in the mode. This was fun and relatively easy, definitely a good learning piece. I don't know why I had to frog so many times the first time I tried it. All I can say is, knit on and you will get it. Oh, and when blocking, use lots of pins, LOTS--especially on the cast-on edge. They really do make all the difference in eliminating the fish tail look. What a fun project!
