This is not the best picture unfortunately. The stitches are coming out much better and, even though you can't see it in the photo, the actual stitch pattern is visible. The yarn is becoming super fuzzy as I'm working it up, which is fun but at the same time makes it that much more challenging as I'm knitting. There were several times I had to undo a stitch to correct either having inserted into the yarn or to correct having simply transferred the stitch instead of knit/purling in it. The key was actually slowing down and not worrying about how long a piece I knit. Breathe.
