By the time I did two repeats of the purse stitch, I faced reality and ripped it. I started again on size six needles. It looks significantly better, and significantly narrower. The narrowness I can accept. The "supposed to be a wrap but now it's a scarf" was for my mom, and I think she's more of a scarf person than a wrap person.
So here we have it:
I bought 5 skeins from Posh yesterday. 2 skeins of Louche, a very rich navy blue, Ormulu, an unusual goldish brown, Savoir-Faire, a lovely heathered green-brown, and Bergamot, because I love Earl Gray. That's 5 skeins of sock yarn--one of the Louche will be a Christmas gift, I think.
And thank goodness someone else bought Zeitgeist.
