I got too cocky! I made my first cabling mistake and didn't find it until 1.5 repeats later. Oh the humanity! Well, actually it wasn't that bad and I think I ended up picking up the stitches correctly and finding my correct spot again after I frogged without too much trouble.
I'll keep tugging along. I'm pretty excited to finish this one. Marie has given me her copy of "The Purl Stitch," to look at so this time I might actually use bona fide finishing techniques.
