I finished the back for Hey, Teach last night. I love the way it looks. The yarn is kind of splitty, tinking is a pain, and cotton is tiring to work with. My hands felt stiff when I woke up this morning. But look how pretty!

Yes, it’s sunny this morning, but everything is wet outside, so I’m reduced to chasing the sunny spots on the floor, much like the cat does.

I also finished the blue checkerboard scarflet, and took it over to Twisted to be a shop model. But I forgot to take a picture of it, so it’s not pictured here or on Ravelry. Yet.

I’m going to be knitting some purple squares for Anne’s Knit A Purple Square project. She’s making a purple afghan in honor/memory of her husband, who succumbed to pancreatic cancer last June. The afghan(s) will go either to a local cancer ward, or to raise money for PanCAN (Pancreatic Cancer Action Network). Can you knit a purple square, too?

  1. Wow, you’re working very quickly! I love it, it looks great! Hopefully the great stitch definition from this yarn eventually outweighs the pain it is causing you :)

  2. Love it! Since I seem to be playing catch up with you, I can’t wait to start one. Maybe after the holidays.

  3. Ooh, it is very pretty!

  4. It’s coming along beautifully! I love the color. What yarn are you using? I used to hate working with cotton as well; however, I have found that Rowan’s cotton yarns (specifically cotton glace) are wonderful to work with. They aren’t splitty or hard on your hands, and the stitch definition is beautiful. It’s definitely a bit pricey though.
    Looking forward to seeing how your cardi turns out!

  5. Wow! This looks fantastic! ^_^
