I hope that’s what the center spine (on the right) is supposed to look like.

When I was taking the picture, I noticed an error where I purled instead of knitted. I’m not sure I want to go back and correct it.

When you drop a stitch with this yarn it tends to run itself down the row like a stocking if you don’t put something in there to stop it. There’s also a mix of K2tog stitches in there I’d have to keep track of. I’m going to put it in time out while I think about it some more. (Later: Nope, didn’t put it in time out. Not going to correct it. Just kept going.)

Here’s the back. Knitting the wrong side is like an eight-stitch repeat from purl stitch to purl stitch. It took a few rows before I caught on that it’s seven stitches then a purl across the back. I occasionally have to catch myself and go back a few stitches.

About 25 more rows to go until I start the bust increases.
