Knitting progress ...

(taking advantage of the sun actually being out) The afghan has grown larger, Citron has gained another band of colour, and some of that newly-acquired Stärke 6 snuck onto the needles when I wasn't looking. ;-)

Plus I finally found a decent how-to for grafting pattern stitches together ... one that actually TELLS you how instead of claiming to and then tapdancing around the whole problem (all knitting books tell you how to graft knit stitches to knit stitches, which is how one closes the toes of handknitted socks, but they all avoid the whole issue of combinations of knit/purl stitches). Now I've incentive to get back to work on my red hooded scarf ... I'd been stalling because the cables on the hood have to be grafted together and I didn't want my lovely pattern to have an ugly join.
