This was my first attempt:
Thinking about it now, it would have been better to use a provisional cast on, instead of trying to neatly and invisibly sew together the cast on and bind off edges.
Also, I didn't really pay attention to the gauge differences of the two yarns and the pink frosting ended up too high and poofy. The second attempt was not much better.
I think I need to just rip it out and start over. So now my urge to stuff it in a drawer and forget about it is conflicting with my desire to finish it by fathers day.
I feel completely untalented right now.
