So I've ripped this baby like 3 times now. I found that using worsted weight yarn works a ton better as a life line, I can find my stitched easier. I've also found that I have to work on this baby when no one is around.....It's going to take awhile. Look at that needle..man is it torn up, it's the set I learned how to knit on. I'm thinking I need to pick up some bamboo ones, they might be better for the yarn. On another note it's so nice out today!!!!
