Back on track

So I took up my labors again this morning, and failed time after time.  Finally I took the key plate out to the garage and fairly soaked it with silicon spray.  Problem solved!  My next try resulted in row after row of beautiful stitches, with no dropped stitches at all.  Of course, now I'm tired like a dead thing.

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!
