Definitely don't frog it. You've come too far to go back and do it all over again. It looks beautiful the way it is - pooling and all.  Smiley

The dropped stitches help break up the pooling, so it will be less noticeable when you're finished. It's a lovely color!

i think when it's all wrapped up around you, the pooling is hardly noticeable!

I think it's pretty, it reminds me of a nebula

I'm doing  Row 2: Sl1, k1, ktbl, [p1,ktbl,k3,ktbl] to last marker, p1, ktbl, kfb.

do I purl all the way along the purl row, or do I purl the purl stitches and knit the knit stitches and end up with a 5x1 rib before unravelling?

You can purl all the sts or knit that one st. It's up to you.

do anyone know a way to find out how long a skein of yarn is? thanks to very clever yarn company there is no yardage listed on the band.. and i have only 1 skein of this goergous yarn and i would love to know before hand wether i will repeat less of the width section or not.. me likes longer clapotis (my first one ended up short so instead of ripping back i gave it to my mom)

You can take a guess based on the yardage of a yarn with the same fiber content and weight of the skein (grams or ounces) and thickness. It will vary depending on how densely it is spun, but if the fiber content is the same it will usually be close.

You can also check and see if Yarndex has it listed. You can check by brand and type of yarn you're using. If they have it on their website, it should give all the specs for that yarn - including standard yardage per skein.  Smiley
