I did manage to wrangle the sweater out from under Tux (though I'm sure I'll pay for the transgression later.)
Now you can see it's pretty colour - and I've made some good progress on it - it's at 9 inches, only 8 more to go until I set it aside and start the sleeves.
At first I was a little disappointed with how slowly it was growing. But then I reminded myself, unlike Eileen - this one is knit in the round - so I'm knitting the front and the back at the same time! Once I realized that, I have to say, I was pretty pleased.
Admittedly, the pattern is boring - just a 6-2 garter rib. But the yarn is divine - so soft and squishy. I will have to set it aside to work on a baby sweater soon - but I'm hoping to get to the armpits by then. Wish me luck!
