Crochet is not my Friend

I finished the front of my swing top yesterday and did a proper three needle bind off on each of the seams. At this point, I loved the project and was very happy with the way things were progressing. Of course, that was before the crochet edging. I just absolutely hate crochet. I don't know why, but I can never quite get the gauge down. I was blithely moving along on the neck edging (5 rows of Single Crochet) and decided to ignore the puckers and tightening until, of course, I was about three rows in. Dumb.

When I got to the ripping part, the twisted little stitches were not quite loosening up... So, they knotted... So, I have to reconstruct some of the binding. Argh.

Blah. That isn't the best picture, but I am annoyed with the mistake. I'll try to plunge right back in this evening, if all goes well. Must be the end of the semester exhaustion--I don't think it should be this hard! Either that or the knitting goddess is really mad at me ....
