Now on row 40. I have learned to drop my cables back a few rows to twist or retwist as needed- I guess you could say that is some sort if progress ! I did not nip in waist and will make sweater longer .

I decided after wearing my favorite suit coat that was nipped in at the waist that I would regret not doing the waist shaping, so from row 44 I ripped back to row 8 to start over and do waist shaping! Carol helped me add 4" to the overall length and figure out the waist shaping as well. Now if I could just find her response to my question on the site. I am on row 36 for the second time but have learned a lot along the way so doing it twice might not have been so bad!
