Oooh, i can actually join in on this one!!

I'm S L O W L Y knitting the DNA scarf and have only completed one repeat (35 rows) of the pattern. (too much grading at night... hrmph!)

It's a lot of firsts for me wrapped in one!

- i've never knit with fancy posh yarn and i'm using silk/alpaca

- i've never had to read a pattern that's a coded picture and not written out, line by line.

- i've never had to use a lifeline before

and the biggie:

- i've never knit cables before - EVER!

So i'm learning a lot from this project - i just wish it was going a little faster!!

Hopefully i'll be done by the end of November. I had better be - Xmas is just around the corner!!! ARGH!

Thanks Hilde - EXCELLENT idea!!

Ahhhh, healthy obsession.... How i love thee and seek thy comfort....
