I hit a milestone on this project in this last week: halfway point! I hit that magic number with 160 stitches on the needle, which meant I could start the decreases! You can see a little bit of the progress in the first picture. I've got lots of things I want to knit next (I printed out at least five patterns tonight...I'm so ready), so hopefully this week I can get some movies off my Netflix queue while knitting away.
Also, the color balance looks really messed up in these photos. I'm still trying to figure out shooting in manual, obviously.
