Nether the less

On my way out the door, to go to work this morning, but just wanted to pop in and show you what I've been working on since Friday. These are the beginnings of the leggings, i.e. "Nether Garments" from the Knitters Almanac. I am making them in black Knit Picks Swish, as Danielle requested. So far I casted on, knit 14 rows in garter stitch, then knit a bit, doing some increases for the calf and now I am about up to the knee. I will cast on the second leg today and bring that one to the same point before continuing. I love working with this yarn so far. It has a lovely hand and drape. If I must knit in black, at least it feels luxurious!
Ok, as I say toot-a-loo, I must thank everyone for all of your sweet comments and compliments on the Pi. How nice to hear your feedback. Again, thanks to all of you! And Mom, Pi is in the mail today! Love, love, love you!!!

Fabulous! Now, I must ask------ there surely must be a great reason why you are casting on the second and getting to the same point? PLEASE INSPIRE ME!

I love the dark shade! This are going to fablous. It's so fun to knit something new, isn't it?

To answer Tina, I don't really have a reason, other than I want to have both legs of the leggings going at the same time. (Don't want to have 2nd sock syndrome set in!)

And Jenni, yes, I am so enjoying something new and different than I have knit before. And something that isn't Pi! LOL

Happy Knitting!
