i was so excited to get going on this, and then one thing after another happened, and i kept getting delayed. but now, finally, i am cooking with gas, and i LOVE it! i am using a hand spun yarn, which is a nightmare, as i keep hitting knots in the yarn where i have to stop, cut the yarn, and restring all those beads over and over again--YUCK. but i think it's coming out pretty well, in spite of a few technical difficulties. i have about an inch more knitted than what you see here. sorry the picture isn't better--i took it with my phone.
as you see, i am getting a little help from my friend here. with fergus's assistance, i am hoping to get through most of this top over the weekend. :) the truth is, fergus is a great cat who mostly just sits on my lap when i am knitting, but he is a major needle thief! what kind of cat is not interested in yarn but wants the needles instead? the mind boggles.
more and better pictures to come, i promise!
