I love Kureyon! It knits up so fast! I've never used a needle larger than US 8, so my 10.5s are so big it seems as though I am whizzing through it. Well... whizzing is a subjective term- I managed to finish the bottom of my Booga bag but that was more than I expected to accomplish since the workweek is when I am most crunched for time. But for me, that's whizzing.
Now I am trying to figure out how to pick up the stitches and twist it, according to the pattern. I'm not sure how I will pick up stitches on the sides that aren't actually rows, but columns. But I found a discussion on a site that seems to address this. I've not tried knitting in the round and I'm really curious to see how it is.
Actually, now I am wondering if I can finish this and try another one (in a quieter color) for my mother for Mother's Day, and still somehow manage to work fulltime and get through my two classes. Hm. Maybe Christmas would be better- or maybe it's a package perfect for "random package from long lost daughter" Day.
Maybe I should just focus on this project before I start planning my second bag. Oh- for the days where I focused just on one project at a time, especially one I am enjoying so much!!
The bird I mentioned earlier is still happily snuggled on our windowsill. :) I keep peeking to see when the little ones are coming. I love spring!
