So far so good. I'm on row 31. I don't know if I should block it first and then steek it or steek it then block it. And um, since I've been informed by more than one person, I will explain these random knitting terms. Steeking is when you cut the yarn and in this instance you are cutting because it's easier to knit fair isle in the round even when you want a flat surface at the end. You just knit it then snip! In this case, I'm also going to sew some lines down the row I'm planning on cutting because it's a large gauge. :)
And may I just say~ 2010 was redeemed quite nicely by Ms. Quimby. Excellent coffee, a forbidden cheese croissant, and wonderful company? Why yes please!
