Cheesylove Update

CheesyloveI’ve made a little progress on Cheesylove, as you can see here. I finished the ruffle (casting on 1,008 stitches!) and I’ve just started the body decreases. Apologies for the bad picture; thick black wool is hard to photograph with a crappy camera. I’m using a 60cm-long 5mm wooden circular needle. (I’d have preferred an 80cm but it was all they had, and I like the wood.) I’m going to have to stop here, though, as I think I’m the only one that’s actually begun. My sister is understandably distracted by this whole “getting-married” business. I’ve got some other knitting projects to distract me though, like the Stitch and Bitch I’m hosting this Saturday. Fun!

And on a related note, my career as a knitting instructor has begun in earnest. Today I gave a lunch hour lesson to two of my co-workers. One of them “got it” immediately, but the other had difficulty with the hand coordination. It’s good to get practice in dealing with different kinds of students!

  4. Nah, it’s cool. I’ve got a bunch of side projects that will distract me for a while… plus my new Denise knitting needles to try out, courtesy of my rockin’ Mom! Yay!

  5. I just re-started cheezy love, I should have the ruffle done tonight. whoo-hoo!

  6. Mine’s been set aside for ages. I’m still debating on whether I should rip it back and redo the decreases and increases properly. I probably will…
