Here is my progress on CeCe:
It is a wee bit longer than it was yesterday, as I only manage to do a couple of rows a day. Because the body is knit in one piece up to the armholes it takes approximately forever for me to knit a row.
I have a bit of a conundrum. I’ve got a couple of time-consuming stealth projects I am working on that have rather tight deadlines, yet I want to have knitting to show on the blog. Since this, after all, purports to be, you know, a knitting blog.
When all else fails, do a giveaway.
I have this here book:
It is Color Knitting the Easy Way by Melissa Leapman. What’s the easy way? Stripes and slipped stitches, so that you are only ever working with one color at a time. There’s a lot of great info in this book — discussion of the color wheel and theory, step-by-step instructions for mastering techniques for knitting stripes and mosaic knitting, a treasury of stitch patterns, and a number of cute patterns for both stripe and mosaic knitting.
If you’d like to enter to win my copy of this book, leave a comment on this post by noon (Eastern Time) on Sunday May 2 and the Random Number Generator will choose a winner.
