Well I started over yesterday. I decided it was indeed about the process and I am just enough of a perfectionist to need it done right. I've gotten about 25 short little rows done and can sure see a difference when those k2tog became the ssk they're supposed to be. I'm glad I when ahead with the redo because it really does look better than it did. The yarn over spaces are now equal in size. I'll post a picture when I have something to show.
