I've managed to figure out how to map out the pattern. I've never worked from a pattern map before....heck I've only swatched to meet gauge once before this. I probably shouldn't be admitting to this but I'm all about keeping it real. I'm enjoying the pattern so far and I'm making pretty good progress.
I'm half way through the decrease section of the body shaping with....WAIT FOR IT.....no mistakes! I'm pretty sure that's a first too! Now don't get me wrong....there's been a few close calls but I managed to catch them before they became full out mistakes! :-)
