I'm making another barn dishcloth and this time I used the correct size needles. ;) I can tell an improvement over the first and I'm less than half-way through the pattern.
Shortly after I started this post, I attempted to knit in very little light (ok it was dark). This morning I had to remove 4 rows to fix my mistake but I learned something in the process. #1 - Don't knit in the dark and #2 I don't have to frog the whole thing when I make a mistake.
