this arrived at my doorstep yesterday. i was amazed that my postal person actually left the box on the porch vs. leaving me a slip to pick it up at the postal annex. there are some really nice designs in here. i do love rowan!
i have about 6 or so inches of the body of claudia knitted. though the knitting is fast, the progress is sloooooooowww. i'm still on gauge (7 sts/inch) too! don't be deceived by the picture, as i've only knitted those few inches of the body starting at the bottom hem. i just laid the sleeves, folded in half, to get an idea of how it's going to look finished. it's going to look lovely :)
i have not totally neglected my albany otto. i'm actually thinking i will take a break from these size 3 needles and work on otto with the 6's. and butterfly? she's still armless! i'm too lazy to pin the sleeves on to check for length.
