  1. Hi Elena!
    I am really enjoying your CAL and the beautiful pattern you’ve created. Thank you! I have a question about week 3 row 30. I completely messed up and completed this row on the wrong side rather than the right side. Can you share with me how noticeable this will be if I leave it this way? If it will be noticeable then with my OCD I will need to frog it. But I’m just not sure how bad it will look. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
