First Sweater Class

Last night, I attended the first class of my sweater workshop. My favorite moment of the evening was when Gayle (fellow student) stated, "I just hope I can finish this sweater before I die". Our teacher, Cheri (pronounced Sherry) checked our gauge and answered questions. My one take away was to learn the proper way to hold yarn. I have been pinching the yarn between my finger and thumb to work it over the needle. This new way to hold the yarn will take the stress off my hand and hopefully eliminate the numb finger syndrome I've been experiencing.

Between class and watching "Lost" last night, I'm up to 8 1/2 inches on the sweater. Sweet kitten Chloe kept me company by resting on the mogu pillow.
