Yesterday I frogged my first attempt at the Mimi Vintage Top. The bottom curls up; I am not a fan of blocking and worrying about steaming it flat every time I want to wear it. Bleh.
I casted on again and decided to knit garter panels instead of stockinette panels for the first 24 rows (6 pattern rows times 4 - easier to remember). I forgot to knit the center lace panels (oops) but incorporated the pattern as much as I could. So far so good.
