I bought this pattern in early December thinking to knit it with my Mom when she came for a visit.
Since that didn't work out, I will be saving it to knit with her when I finally go to see her in the Fall.
But this is not to say I will not work all the bugs out of it first!
I am knitting this with fingering weight yarn held doubled on #6 needles (it is still a firm fabric and the recommended #5's were really firm)
I'm not sure I am happy with this needle either and will try it with #8's for a few rows and compare.
It is a very enjoyable knit for all the reasons that the reducing squares are great but this one has a very interesting structure and the columns can be knit simultaneously!
I am even joining the ends with a square knot and letting the joins
fall where it may--no ends for me! Can't get simpler than this!
We could do a KAL for the rest of the year!
