Its a lot of hours of work to get that far in 2 days.
The really interesting part of this is how much time I spend contemplating the difference between knitting wool and the chunky cottony silky goodness of Karuta.
The thing that is amazing, is how easily the gauge issue became not an issue. I just had to do another increase set at the first round of the wool and I was withing 4 stitches of the pattern books amount needed for the next gauge up. Coolness and luck.
I hope. It is in the wearing that the truth will out. The gauge games will work or not. It looks like I have a good shot at it right now, but time will tell if I have it right.
