it’s done but not blocked yet (pics soon thereafter). i have decided i don’t like knitting with cotton on small(ish) needles. or at least the susan bates needles that i usually use. it didn’t want to slide around and made my hands hurt. my stash-busting is going well. i’ve spent quite a bit looking through all my knitting books, trying to piece together patterns to use up more of it. it seems i’ve purchased a lot of little quanitites of yarn, just to try it out, but not enough to even make a hat, so i might just have a lot of skinny scarves in my boutique soon. :) i haven’t touched the knitting machine since last sunday. i told the lender that it seems too complicated and unable to do the things i want to try next. we’ll see.
