That's the up side. The down side is that the row counter stopped working somewhere in the 50s and I have no idea how long this piece is.
Knowing nothing about knitting, I'm taking advice from the innerwebs. I have read that since the knitting was under tension on the machine, I should let it rest for 24 hours before I check the gauge. Tomorrow I will block it and see if the gauge is ok, and then I can start!
