Hi friends! Not too much new to report.
I've also been working on my hitchhiker. Progress is slowing as the rows get longer, but it's coming along. I love this project for autopilot knitting!
http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html and I absolutely love it! I'm using simply soft yarn. It's soft, the colors are super saturated, and I love how squishy it gets when put through the washer and dryer! I hope knitting is as easy for me as crochet one day.
That's all from me for now, happy crafting!
