A Modest Beginning.

This is the first project from Mason*Dixon Knitting that I've completed, the basic ballband dishcloth. Great results for an easy project.

I'm feeling rather pleased with myself; I finished the dishcloth, am working on Teva Durnham's Cabled Riding Jacket, and cast on for the second Jaywalker. Stop laughing, all of you with fingers more nimble.

I can't think of a knitting project to accompany Pride and Predjudice. Well, I can't think of a project that I personally can finish within the time limit set.

I mailed my postcards for Project Spectrum yesterday; I'm sending one to my last month's swap buddy too, although the USPS andGerman postal system have yet to deliver her April card to me. Not her fault, though; she did mail it, but it is somewhere in postal limbo. I'm hoping the cards arrive intact; one paper that I used seemed to have a waxiness to it that wasn't all that receptive to glue. I was even gluing down corners at the post office.

I've been drooling over the Cabled Riding Jacket for eons, now. Any chance of a pic? I haven't seen many bloggers doing it.

I'm thinking of knitting some flowers from Nicky Epstein's embellishment book and thereby doing the project for once without reading the book. Again. (Again, as in I just finished rereading P&P in January.)

Yes! A pic of your Cabled Riding Jacket!
