I was in dire need of something easy, that I could knit on at the shop and wouldn't require any fussing. My other current WIP, Charm, does not fit the bill at all, what with her increasing and cabling and such. I dug 8 balls of Silk Garden out of the stash (thanks, Leslie!) and cast on. I really hate seaming, and this yarn doesn't seem like it takes well to any sort of abuse, so I decided after completing the garter edging and a few rows of st st to join the front and back. I know it'll make the stripes thinner, but I'm okay with that. I'm thinking of a comfortable, pretty sweater that I love to wear so let's hope it comes out as such!

At the mo' I'm looking for a M-F job so I can maintain my lessons on Sunday and work at the LYS on Saturday. Thankfully Meredith and Doyle have been really supportive and helpful! And no, anonymous rude commenter, I am not looking into retail. :P
