It's a wonder I make any progress at all:
1. The gauge is incredible! With 3 mm needles I knit 37 stitches per 10 cm (ca 9.5 stitches per inch) compared to 22-25 when I knit continental. It's supposed to be this tight, though, or the deep-relief effect will be lost.
2. It's sloooooooow... I knit contintental at least three times quicker! This is meant to become a raglan sweater, so maybe it will be finished by the time I retire. I want to learn how to knit in my sleep.
