For the progress-obsessed among us, blogs can be a dangerous thing. Not only do I want to feel like I’m getting somewhere with my knitting, but I also want to be able to show that I’ve gotten somewhere. You know – blog fodder.

I’ve spent more time on knitting in the past 4 days than I probably have in the past 3 weeks. Which is great. Except that it’s all invisible.

A chart here, a swatch there.

Preparation for bigger things.

Learning, absorbing, closely studying how others work, and how they present their work. Following by example. Finding my own way.

But that doesn’t leave me with much to show.

So today, I present you with one hundred and forty closely packed stitches on some rather small needles.

A promise of more to come.
