Ok, so now the deadline knitting is over (check it out) and I have really and truly started on Ester...I know I'm just a bit behind everyone, but seeing as how I live in Georgia, there will be no need to wear it until October......
I've cast on for the medium size and just started the cables yesterday. I'm still getting used to the cables w/out a cable needle, but I think once I get the hang of it, it will definitely be easier than using one of those blasted little curvy things.
The yarn is a little scratchy to work with, but it's so beautiful stitched that I'm being very forgiving about it.
Can't wait to spend some quality time knitting over the long weekend!
