I ended up ripping almost all the way back (to the second row) one last time, on the airplane on Thursday morning, and knitted through the bridal shower, and a pedicure, and the rehearsal dinner, and getting my hair done on Saturday morning, but it was worthwhile in the end; I think SR was pleased with the end result.
The design element that SR really wanted was the “x” on the back, and I think my version turned out much better than our original inspiration shrug.
