Okay, some of you may recall the blue one of these I knitted a few months back and how I lamented that although I stitched it perfectly, the depth was far less than I'd wanted or anticipated. This time around, I stitched it far from perfectly, but as the attached file shows, it fits exactly how I wanted! Someone (Tallguy?) suggested duplicating some of the rows that didn't involve inc/dec/or twisting, and I had to mark my pattern all up (changed row numbers and whatnot), but it worked magnificently. Although I inadvertently yet horribly jacked up the final twist (the purl st in the middle...I absent-mindedly moved the cbl ndl sts to the back instead of keeping them in the front) so that it looks less like a twist and more like a cinch, I'm still liking it and think it looks fine still. If I knit another one ever again, I may not duplicate those rows and, instead, duplicate the first stitch after the bottom pattern closes. It's fun to alter things. My next project? God...I haven't even thought about that yet. I supposed I should finally do the finishing on all those scarves I've been knitting over the summer so I can send them down to my mom for her friends. It's getting about that time of year where they'd actually want them.
I hate weaving in ends...........
Also, thank you to everyone for their very kind words. You all are great!
