And now a knitting related post

Yes I'm sure everyone thought I must have simply given up knitting. All you get is posts on trees, salsa, soup ... well today we get back to knitting.

I'm pleased to report that FiFi is progressing quite nicely.

Yesterday I reached the try on stage and modeled it both on my doppelganger ...

and on the real thing, me. So far so good. I've separated the sleeves and am now one row away from moving to the lower bottice pattern.

This is really a fun pattern and, while moving a little slowly for me (it is very fine gauge yarn and small needles!), I love the cable action. I'm also finding the Rowan Calmer quite enjoyable to work with.

Knitting progress... it is good!
