Progress So Far



As you can see I just started the little finger. I have to admit the pattern is very well written, but I like said earlier I suggest you read through it first cos you need to be able to work a couple of areas at a time. I think the hardest part so far has been the braided cast on, but I have learned a new cast on, and I have learned to do float weaving and have the flourechette left to learn soon. I think this looks very Christmassy and my mom loves them even though she does not know they are really for her.
Tracy loving the glove and safe trip.
I cant wait til the rest of you get to posting and I am so physched that we have 50 people signed up so far. I did not have time to work on my gloves at work today, I actually had to work. Someone asked me what my knitting was, they saw my bag and I told them I was knitting painted ladies, they looked at me strange, but I love that name, makes them sound kind of decadent which they are.
Off to work on my finger, and watch Idol. Please send Sanjaya home and I am a total Melinda/Jordin fan.

Cathy,

That is close to how I make all my socks and what I am planning on doing on the gloves. All my small needles even my 000 are a 40" circular, so I magic loop everything. Just make sure you have 4 seperate balls you are working from or you will be forever twisting the yarn around. LOL. You do not want to know how I know that!
