I guess it's not fair to already characterize the Venezia as my nemesis, but it's been annoying me since the day after Christmas. I finally decided to cast on NOT using invisible provisional cast on, because, after a bazillion tries, I decided it was never going to work out for me.
So. I'm only on row 5. I have to get to 15 before the fun starts. And by fun, I mean constant hurling. I absolutely hate the needles I'm using. I believe I'm using Inox size 2 circulars, and at row 15 I can breathe a sigh of relief and switch to my size 4 Turbos. But the relief will be short lived, as the chart begins on row 15. Blarg!!
