    I dove in and created a fake sweater using guessed-at measurements and gauges to see how this works.
    Can I delete the sweater or the "who is it for" profile? As you can tell, I learn by jumping in and making mistakes. Not ideal, but there it is...
    Now that I know exactly which measurements to have on hand before I start inputting data, I'd like to start again.
    New users, if you don't know the recipient's data or need help measuring yourself, do this ahead of time. And if you don't know your gauge, heed Frank's advice.

    I haven't provided a way to delete sweaters or recipients because I am afraid someone may delete one of them by mistake and there would be no way to get back a sweater that had already been purchased. Also, if a not-yet-purchased sweater is dependent on a recipient that got deleted, that sweater would be broken and could not be fixed and purchased. [Later edit: However, I have now provided a way to deal with both of those issues. See below and entries in the blog.]

    What you did is exactly what I have encouraged people to do to get familiar with the website while the patterns are free. But it does have this side effect of leaving the test sweater and recipient there. So I see the problem. I'll think about it and probably come up with a way to 'hide' the sweater and/or recipient so you don't see them in your lists, but still be able to bring them back if it was by mistake. This will be an enhancement I'll have to develop a bit later.

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    Hi Claire,

    You may now hide any sweater you do not wish to see in your listing any longer. There is a 'hide' link in the lower right corner of each sweater on the "Sweaters" page. I'll write a blog post now to describe how to see the hidden sweaters and bring them back if you ever want to do that. [Later: Here is the blog post.]

    Happy knitting!

    And now I have a solution to the issue about removing a recipient from the "Who for" list. It's not quite as straight forward, but it is doable. See this blog post.
