making it worse. So I took it over to my stitch and bitch girls and Meleah so selflessly used a good portion of her very rare (these days) knitting time to frog it back for me and Connie taught me how to insert a lifeline with the help of Christine's needle. Woo-wee! I am up and running with "Branching Out" again. Thanks girls. I used misti alpaca for this and yes although it looks amazingly like the Cashsoft Aran I used for Clapotis. It is not. And yes, this too, I am allergic. My curse in life. I'm destined to work only with acrylic yarns if I don't want to suffer. Ah phooey!
