love this yarn, love this pattern--so far organized Christmas knitting is going well. since i know my mom doesn't even know about this blog it's okay to post this one!
recently, i have been attempting to switch over to continental knitting and this project is my first TOTALLY continental project since i first learned to knit. I (like EZ) learned to knit continental but was then lead astray and began solely using English style knitting. i have finally conquered the continental purl and feel very confident knitting. hopefully this will mean faster knitting and greater efficiency= less pain in my hands!
