Here a just a couple pictures of the work in progress. It's nothing fancy but it is next attempt at reading and actually understanding pattern directions.
Here's where all the yarn snobs will start itching....It will be interesting to see how it behaves. I am using Caron Simply Soft "Strawberry". It's an acrylic that is nicely soft and it should wear like iron and it's completely washable and dryable. It is a medium weight #4 and the guage for 4x4" using US8/5MM circular needle. The yarn is 6 oz/ 170g or 315 yds/ 288m. The yarn has a nice sheen to it, so that adds a nice little dimension to it.
