Katrina Rib Update

I took some photos of the progress I'd made this afternoon, and then I got a bunch more done while we watched a movie. It's moving really quickly; I'm on row 90 and I imagine I am 2/3 to 3/4 finished. At some point soon I am going to put it on some string and try it on; I'm not quite sure how long I want to make it. I'm also toying with sending the travelling rib back the other way, but I'm not quite sure about that. It will depend on how much longer I decide to make it.

The stitch holder marks one of the sleeves.

It's hard to get a photo of it lying flat because of the stitch holders at the sleeves. Ah, well.

I did make one mistake and realised it five rows later; I was not about to rip back five rows, so at one point I travelled the rib at the wrong spot (row 58 instead of 57). I decided I can live with that. I also attempted to knit a weird knot into the fabric but when I got back around to it on the next row I realised that was a bad idea, so I did rip back on that one! It goes quickly in the sense that I seem to get back to a travel row (every 4 rows) in no time at all; the length does not seem to be growing that quickly though!

When Cookie was knitting hers she kept saying that she needed 2" more, even after having knit 2" since saying that the last time! :)

Well at least it's not just me :) I have reached the "endless knitting" stage and it isn't my favourite.

How is Niels' cocoon coming along?
