I Gotta Get Going

I got my yarn yesterday. Now, I need to wind it. My swatch is only at about an inch. Maybe tomorrow during the game would be a good time to work on it all.

I too, have old eyes so I blew up the chart and am shading it in with a pencil. Then, I'll run it through my copier again so it won't smudge. I think that will help so I can glance at it from the table next to me.

I'm On My Way!

How gorgeous is this . . .

I'm working this in Quebecoise and strangely got gauge on the suggested Size 6 needles (this is truly unusual with my normal death-like grip on the needles -- maybe it's due to working with two colors). The part that shows white is actually a very light grey.

I gotta tell ya -- I really love working this pattern. So interesting without being annoyingly difficult for my middle-aged eyes. I'm up to about line 35 in the chart (I started this yesterday morning) and right now my hands are hurting a bit. I'll probably switch back and forth between holding both colors in one hand and holding one color in each hand. I'd blow my brains out if I had to stop because I had worked my little hands to death.
