Adventures in Knitting: The Project

Though once I was  a pretty decent knitter, it's been decades, and I'm back to "inexperienced" (though experience is rushing in, as I make novice blunders and have to fix them.)   I picked a large First Project, for several reasons, one of them the conviction that knitting and purling long, uninterrupted rows would help me get back my rhythm, which lay behind my (formerly) very even stitches.   Lots of just plain knitting, garter stitch and stockinette, I thought, would be just the ticket for retraining my hands, now used to a lot of little up and down and slightly sideways movements of typing.  

It might have been wiser not to change all the variables at once.
