Whoop & all that jazz. I finally got the Raglan decreasing right. Wahey! The multiple stitch-by-stitch undoing of row upon row of garter stitch paid off. It's right and now I can move on with the bloomin' thing.

Regular decreasing isn't a bother. It's just that I tried to used Dominknitrix's way of decreasing, where they stack one on top of the other to form a design detail. It doesn't work so well with garter stitch. So I went back to regular ole decreasing.

I'm liking the colour too (cravings for chocolate aside)
