Cast on and one row complete, after an unfortunate hiccup mid first row that required quite a bit of back pedaling! I love the Vivian pattern, but it is a little daunting to begin with. Nevertheless, Ruby Tuesday has begun! Who could hang a name on her?... Well, aside from me, obviously.
And I even have a treat to make the cabling go better - a set of cable needles from the Celtic Swan Forge. Handmade, bronze cable needles that are beautiful to hold and behold!
I wore Arwen out for the first time yesterday and she received her dues in compliments... as well as a birthday order that I was sorry to laugh off, but, seriously... mittens, socks, scarves, absolutely. Sweaters are just for family! Or very, very, very close friends. She was as wonderful to wear as I hoped and every time I felt a little overwhelmed with meetings and due dates, I looked down at the cuff and felt better!
