One down, six to go...

Kyoto Back

Well, I can finally cross one piece off the to do list. I think it came out pretty good, but apparently I have ADD when it comes to binding off. I only had to count to 10, but I lost count every time! So I ended up with 32 stitches at the end instead of 30. Oh well - its my personalization. I also realized that I HATE binding off purlwize. I found it very difficult to wedge my needle back into the stitch to pull it over the other stitch. I kept stretching everything out and then having to tighten it back down. But, I think it ended up ok.

In other news, I also got my main Secret Pal gift completed. So, I will be able to send it out pretty soon :-) I just want to make another trip to the yarn shop to pick up a couple more goodies.

Hope you all had a nice 4th of July weekend!

Wow- congrats! You two are truly inspirational! I am so behind (no pun intended). I am still only about halfway done. I finally feel like I have made some progress, but it's so slow going for me...
